This is an easy recipe that is quite adaptable to your own favorite flavors--more chili powder for instance? Maybe some cayenne for extra spice? Although the recipe suggests spraying the cookie sheet, you can also put a bit of oil on it instead (olive). Wonderful served with asparagus, broccoli, or an assortment of your favorite vegetables. Enjoy!

  • 1/2 block extra firm tofu
  • 2 teaspoons EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/4 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika (the hot version is awfully good. . . )
    1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
    2. Press excess liquid from tofu. Wrap several paper towels around tofu, and place tofu in between two plates.  Let stand for 15 minutes. (Ed. note: This is a step that you can omit if you're using Tofu Yu tofu!)
    3. Cut tofu in 1 inch by 1 inch pieces.
    4. In a small, microwave-safe bowl, mix EVOO, honey, chili powder, paprika and black pepper.
    5. Microwave marinade for 35 seconds and stir thoroughly.
    6. Spray cooking sheet.
    7. Coat each piece of tofu in marinade and place on cooking sheet.
    8. Cook at 375 for 30 minutes, turning once.
