I have been wanting to figure out how to cook it, and I ran across what seemed to be a pretty straightforward way to bake it up (to store in the fridge and use in other dishes) on Heather Eats Almond Butter's foodie blog.
Here is the link for her recipe: Perfectly Baked Tofu
I was a little apprehensive but what is the worst thing that could happen? It would taste like ca-ca or it would come up a mushy mess.
|I don't know a thing about which tofu to buy at the store, but I knew to buy extra firm|
|After draining, you are supposed to put on something like a cheesecloth; nothing like a towel or washcloth, and since I dont have cheesecloth, I used one of my race tshirts :) Hey, it worked.|
|Mix up all the goodies in the bowl and spray the baking pan with olive oil Pam; tofu still all nice, neat and tucked into the race tshirt; getting all the liquid out of it.|
|Spicy! I added cayenne and pepper flakes|
|Slice the tofu up into 1 inch blocks|
|Coat/cover in the mixture|
|Arrange on baking pan and bake|
|So I am not a pretty cooker kind of person, but these turned out divine!!!|
I used them the very next night on top of a yummy spinach salad, then some in with steamed veggies another night, and then again in another salad. It keeps forever in the refrigerator!
