• Easy Baked Tofu

    This is a fantastic way to make tofu without having to stand in front of a pan and without the mess to clean.  Instead of cooking spray, I like to toss mine with a tablespoon or two of warmed coconut oil.  Thanks to Jackie from our Facebook community!

    Easy Baked Tofu from Whole Foods Market
    Description: Use this homemade baked tofu in any recipe that calls for baked tofu. Toss it with your favorite spices or herbs before or after baking, if you like.
    Ingredients:
    1 (14-ounce) Package Firm Tofu, drained
    Natural Cooking Spray
    Directions: 

    Wrap tofu snugly in 4 or 5 layers of paper towels and arrange on a plate. Cover with a second plate and balance a heavy can or two on top to weigh down the plate and press down on the tofu; set aside to let drain for 30 minutes. Remove and discard paper towels, then replace with dry paper towels and repeat process a second time. 

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut tofu into (1-inch) cubes and arrange them in a single layer on a large parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Lightly spray tofu all over with cooking spray and bake, flipping halfway through, until golden brown and just crisp, about 40 minutes total.
