Baked, Pressed Tofu


1/2 cup Flour
Favorite spices


Tofu recipe I know is this one: Mix some flour (about .5 cup) with your favorite spices (I like cayenne). Press most of the water out of a block of tofu with a towel, then slice it up any old way. Dip the slices in soy sauce, then in the flour/spice mix, and place on a baking tray. Bake for 20-30 minutes (a toaster-oven is great for this). If you like them browned a little more, put them under the broiler for 5 min. before serving.
But one recipe I have is so yummy I use it in all sorts of things. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (f) cut tofu (firm) into 1" cubes dip cubed tofu in soy sauce, and dust on all sides with fresh-ground black pepper set on lightly oiled (or non-stick) baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, turning once so that all sides are browned evenly. This gives the tofu some real, chewable texture, as well as a spicey zing. I use these tofu chunks in thick stews, or just over steamed veggies.
