I looked at her recipe on her blog, but unfortunately she left it off of the ingredients list there as well. Recipes like this are quite forgiving, so I would use as much or as little as sounds right to you. She is quite detailed about her tofu technique, so that's good.

The technique of pressing the tofu, in case it's new to you, makes a food with more texture than the usual. It can be used raw in salads, fried, baked or frozen.
So probably worth it to press all the tofu in the package you buy, use - as Susan W advises - as much or little as you want, then save the remaining pressed tofu for another meal.

I mostly stay away from soy, but tofu also browns beautifully when it's been pressed.
