I froze some tofu in order to get extra water out of it before marinating and cooking. I'd kind of like to get a start on the marinating process, but it's taking a while to thaw at room temperature - is it ok for me to put it in the microwave, or will this ruin the texture?

According to this page freezing and micro waving will change the texture.

But it seems the author actually prefers the texture change...
