  1. Directions
  2. Press water from tofu by wrapping it between several layers of paper towels and then placing it between 2 dinner plates. Let sit for 15 minutes and then cut into cubes.

  4. Stir in stock; bring to a boil and then reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. Stir in tofu, squash, and cranberries and cook for another 15-20 minutes, until squash is tender, adding more stock as necessary.
