On my endless pursuit to make the easiest and tastiest tofu… this was created. Its super easy and let’s be honest, forgiving with the quantities of the measurements. Add more of something if you love it or less if you don’t. It’s so good we can’t stop making and eating it tbh.
1 block of extra firm (I am a big lover of Wildwood extra firm tofu)
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
2 tbl olive or avocado oil
2 tbl liquid aminos
1 tbl garlic powder
2 tsp smoked paprika
Remove the tofu from the package and drain the water. I pat dry with a clean towel. Slice into small cubes or tear apart.
Into a large mixing bowl add your nutritional yeast through salt. Mix until a paste forms. If it’s too dry, add a tsp or two of water. It should be a thick paste consistency. Add the tofu and toss to coat. Allow to marinade for at least 30-45 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 400 and spray or line your baking sheet with oil or a mat. Once the tofu is marinaded, add it to your baking sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes, remove and flip. The continue to bake for the final 20 minutes. Remove and serve or store in an airtight container and store in the fridge. I eat cold or hot in bowls or salads.
Happy happy cooking kids! ~ox
