I recently figured out how to bake tofu in a way that it is easy to add to any stir-fry, salad, or anything else. It's not quite as good as when you coat it with cornstarch and deep-fry it, but it's better than when you try to saute it in the pan. I've taken to buying tofu at Costco ($3.79 for 6 grocery-store sized blocks) and so then I spend an occasional Sunday baking it so I can toss it into salads or use it in stir fry during the week.
- 1 block of tofu
- cooking spray
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Press tofu between two cutting boards or some other method for draining it.
2. Cut tofu into small cubes - probably about 1/2 inch.
3. Spread evenly on greased pan. Cook for 20 minutes.
4. Turn tofu over to the other side, cook for another 20 minutes or until crispy-ish. Toss into dinner, or store in the refrigerator or freezer for easy use.
Anybody got any good salads, etc. that they like to add tofu to?
