Some friends and I made a trip out to the Super H Mart to pick up some Asian treats last week. One of the awesome things about this place is that they make their own tofu. I knew that I had to do something special with this super fresh block of extra firm bean curd. Rather than go for a stir fry or Fegg Salad, I thought it would be fun to try to turn it into a go-to for simple meals for the week!
This was quick and easy, and it was so much cheaper than the store-bought seasoned tofu I’ve seen in stores.
1 block tofu, cut into strips
1/2c your favorite vinaigrette
Marinate the tofu in the vinaigrette for at least an hour before cooking.
Preheat the oven to 375. Spread out the marinated tofu on an ungreased baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes on each side.
The results are super-versatile! You can eat this hot with some veggies, mashed potatoes, and gravy. Let it cool and toss with greens, avocado, and diced veggies in a salad. Layer strips onto bread with some mustard, lettuce, and avocado for a filling sandwich. Dip it in peanut sauce sort of like a sate. There are endless possibilities, people!
Confession: It was so delicious that I’ve already devoured all of the baked tofu I made! Next time, I want to try tossing this into some Just Add Water Soup, for sure.
This makes me wonder what other convenience foods I can make in my very own kitchen!
