Fast Food Thursday: Tofu Jerky

Would it be more appetizing to call it, braised tofu?

Though it requires some time in the oven, this dish takes minimal preparation, allowing plenty of time to play online mah jong knit, write or improve one's mind while it cooks. The tofu comes out kinda rubbery--think salty eraser--the ideal consistency for toting along on a hike or brown bagging to work. Serve it with a savory brown rice and wilted greens for a tastey weeknight vegetarian meal.

(This recipe comes from our buddy Brett via somebody else with whom we have no acquaintance, so we're giving the credit to Brett.)

2 lbs extra firm tofu

2 tsp garlic powder

1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

Bragg Liquid Aminos

Instructions: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Slice tofu in 1/4-inch cutlets and place in large baking dish. Dust lightly with garllic powder and even more lightly with the cayenne pepper. Squirt cutlets with Bragg Liquid Aminos (not too much or they'll end up really salty). Bake for 30 minutes.

Lower oven heat to 400. Remove baking dish, flip cutlets and repeat the above instructions with the garlic-cayenne-Bragg's mixture. Return baking dish to oven and bake for another 40 minutes or until golden brown and nice and rubbery.

I swear, this tastes really good.

Yum! Looks great!

(I have to say, though, your blog is totally wonky in Firefox. All the sidebar items fill the top of the page and you have to scroll way down to get to the actual post.)
