tofu….that’s tasty

I used to be the manager of a health food store…for 14years. Before that, I worked in another health food store that had a little deli. We used to make these, and mmm they are good.

get some good ol‘ EXTRA FIRM tofu

It looks and acts like a sponge- you want to GENTLY press out as much water as possible

place it in a container (I found these at walmart, they are the PERFECT size for tofu) sprinkle some kosher salt all over it and some garlic powder, too.

Make sure there is a paper towel around the tofu and put another container on top…

weigh it down with a brick or cans of food and place it back in the fridge for 2 days…

dice it into nice squares like this and coat with the following
1/4 c soy sauce
dash Worcestershire
a wooden spoon of sesame oil
tbs honey
pour over the tofu and arrange on a parchment lined baking sheet
sprinkle with panko bread crumbs and sesame seeds
bake at 425 for 35-40 min or until they look nice and dried up and toasty!

they are yummy as is or dipped in plum sauce or duck sauce or ketchup or ranch…. you get the drift!
