Repeat after me: "Tofu can taste good!" Now, I'm gonna get you to believe it. I use this recipe as a stand in for grilled chicken. It's good on top of salads or as a vegan option for any dishes that require grilled meats. You can literally make tofu taste like anything your heart desires; every block is an empty white canvas.
Let's create a new staple in your diet.
What You Need:
1 Block Firm or Extra Firm Tofu
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper to Taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Drain tofu and remove excess moisture by gently pressing the block between two paper towels. Cut the tofu into small chunks or cubes. The more "abstract" the cubes the more it will resemble grilled chicken once cooked, but, this is all based on preference.
Heat a non stick skillet over medium heat and coat the bottom with olive oil or oil of choice. Sautee tofu chunks until brown, then, season and toss with salt and pepper (or seasonings of choice). Remove from heat and pop into the oven for 15-20 minutes until each chunk is firm when gently pressed with your fingertip.
