1. Before you do anything, start cooking the rice.
2. As with vegetables, tofu must be cut just right if you want sushi to look nice once you are done. The goal is to cut long, thin, even strips of tofu once it has been cooked. What you want to do is cut the block of tofu into about 8 pieces, cook it according to the recipe and cut into thin strips once it has cooled.
3. Once the tofu is prepped and your sushi rice is prepared according to the recipe, you are ready to roll. For directions on rolling, see Basic Vegetarian Sushi.
