Tips

Precooked “baked tofu” is firmer than water-packed tofu and comes in a wide variety of flavors. We prefer flavors like “teriyaki,” “Thai” and “savory” in this recipe. You might also like flavored baked tofu on a sandwich or in a stir-fry.

Pros: Unusual and tastey Cons: Needs more seasoning and some green veg Read More

This is a good recipe but needs more seasoning than indicated I followed the measurements exactly and found it bland. I will make it again but add more vegetables and more seasoning. Sandra Marquette MI Read More
