Baked Tofu

Simple to prepare, this is my kid's favorite way to eat tofu. I add this to stir fry dishes, or put it in the kid's lunch boxes with some brown rice. It's also great in sandwiches. From www.fatfreevegan.com.

Baked Tofu

1 lb extra firm tofu
about 1/8 cup low sodium soy sauce or tamari

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Press tofu for 30 minutes, or squeeze excess water out of tofu. 

Slice tofu into 1/4 inch rectangles. Brush with soy sauce, front and back, and allow to marinate for 10 minutes. Place onto a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake for 30-35 minutes, turning once halfway through, until brown and crispy on the outside, but tender on the inside. Remove from oven.

If using in a stir fry or serving to little ones, cut the pieces into cubes before serving.
