There a million ways to cook this old standby, but none quite as simple as this basic recipe. Despite soy being a bit controversial in some circles, I believe that in moderation it can be an easy option for supper. In addition to this method, you can clice your tofu into flat strips to use on sandwiches or in wraps for a great protein in lunch on the go!
- Tofu, sliced about a generous 1/4" thick
- Nutritional yeast
- Margarine (I've tried other products to grease the cookie sheet and nothing works as well as a healthy margarine.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Grease your cookie sheet. Dip the tofu in tamari, then roll it in the nutritional yeast. Place on the cookie sheet. Bake about 20 minutes on each side. If the coating comes off when you flip, you flipped too soon. Give it another 5 minutes. The tofu is great leftover in a sandwich with Veganaise, lettuce, sprouts, pickles, whatever...
