Thanks SPkrause!

I'm just starting to experiment with Tofu, so this is great to have in my kitchen.

SP_STEPF has great tofu advice.

I like to prepare it one of a couple ways, usually marinated a little bit first (soy sauce and vinegar with some spices, usually ... whatever you like):

[1] about 1/6" to 1/4" thick, either squares, rectangles, or triangles, in a skillet with just a coating of oil, sauted / pan-fried until golden on each side.

[2] cut as above, dried, and dredged very lightly in a coating of flour, baking powder, cornmeal, and spices (paprika, cumin, salt, pepper ...), shaken off, sprayed with a little PAM or similar, and baked in the oven @350F until crunchy golden brown on each side, about 45 minutes total.

For more of a 'meaty' texture drain your tofu and wrap in plastic wrap, and freeze it for a while. Thaw and drain. The result is chewier. I always use 'extra firm'.

Hi, SOOKIE. You can swap in grilled, baked or broiled tofu. Try this recipe for easy grilled tofu

Or bake firm tofu slices coated with your favorite marinade for 20 minutes at 425, then flip and bake for another 10-15 minutes. I save time and bake several blocks at a time. :)
