Baking tofu is one of the easiest ways of preparing it. It’s also fun because you can do just about anything with it and make it fit with any meal. My plan for this tofu is to put it in our salads tonight for dinner.
- 7 oz tofu
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp Bragg liquid aminos or soy sauce
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- 1 tbsp Northwoods Seasoning
Start by letting your tofu drain for several hours (or overnight). Cut it into cubes, strips, triangles, whatever you prefer. Then assemble the marinade (mix everything else together in a small bowl).
I like letting the tofu marinate in a sandwich bag, but any small container works fine.Pour the marinade over the tofu, and let it sit in the fridge for a few hours.
When you’re ready, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and spread the tofu out on the baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, flip the tofu, and bake for another 10-12 minutes.
There are SO many variations on baked tofu. You really can’t make a mistake (unless you forget about your tofu in the oven). Also, if you like to throw baked tofu on your salads a few times a week, or you have more than two people in your house, this recipe is very easy to double, triple, or quadruple, and it’ll stay edible in the fridge for at least a few days.
Wondering what Northwoods seasoning is? It’s a Penzeys blend of salt, paprika, black pepper, thyme, rosemary, garlic, and chipotle. It’s delish, but of course you could just go ahead and season your marinade any way you want.
Greg is working from home again today. It’s so nice to have some company on my day off 🙂 . When lunch time rolled around, we decided to fancy up a frozen pizza.
spinach, red bell pepper, goat cheese, crushed red peppers. And leftovers to take to work for lunch tomorrow!
Since lunch was already in the bag, I decided I’d get my breakfast ready for tomorrow as well. I have way too much fun preparing food.
Blurry, but you get the idea. Plain yogurt, pumpkin, raisins, and a sprinkle of Puck’s Halloween Pumpkin Granola in a jar with Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter residue (yeah, we ate an entire jar already). Eating out of jars is just really fun. I highly recommend it.
