I believe "slice" can also be used in this case for "memotong", since it is right to say that one slices tofu and tempeh.

In English, it is normal to say slicing or cutting tofu or tempeh. Chopping refers to cutting into small pieces, which is not how this food is prepared. Chopping carrots or onions (which can also be sliced). Not tofu...

One doesn't "cut" tofu and tempe, one slices them! Actually, you can "cut up" some tofu and tempe.
