Sorry for yet another post. It's a trick I learned quite by accident (although it's apparently well known).

If you have some reasonably firm ToFu (firm, extra-firm) in a package you can do the following experiment:
1 - freeze it solid within the package, liquid and all
2 - when it's good and solid (often appears yellower) put back in fridge to thaw
3 - in a day or so, when it's thawed, you will find a miraculous transformation!

The ToFu is now spongy in a very real sense. It's tougher and full of sponge-size holes. What good about this is that you can squeeze out the excess water and soak in some flavored stuff in it's place. Then cook it. The liquid should be (as I prefer) strongly flavored and spicy. I've found browning Tofu in oil, or even deep-frying, definitely improves its texture and taste.

Seriously Asian: Frozen Tofu | Serious Eats[^] - although in my experience it looks much spongier that the illustration, the author also stumbled across it by accident.

A word of warning: if you buy tofu loose (from a bucket instead of in a package) be very careful not to put more than one male in the same storage container as the females!
