  1. 1 package (14 oz) extra firm tofu such as Wildwood
  2. olive or canola oil
  3. 1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce, lite or regular
  4. 1 teaspoon Spike seasoning
  5. 1/4 cup u2013 1/3 cup nutritional yeast flakes
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. If using a toaster oven thereu2019s no need to preheat.
  2. If you have a TofuXpress press the tofu for 30 -45 minutes. Drain water, cut tofu into four slabs and break each slab into 4 random sized pieces (total 16).
  3. No press? Slice the tofu into four slabs and place in a single layer on paper towels. Layer additional paper towels on top of the tofu slabs. Place a cutting board on top of the tofu with a few books or heavy cans to help press out the water quickly. Follow the steps above, breaking slabs into random pieces.
  4. Place the tofu on a foil lined baking pan. Drizzle a bit of olive or canola oil over the tofu pieces and toss to coat all sides. You wonu2019t need much oil, just enough so the tofu doesnu2019t stick to your pan.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  6. Let tofu cool for 10 minutes then transfer to a large bowl. Drizzle soy sauce over the tofu, tossing to coat all pieces. Add the Spike seasoning and toss again. Lastly, add the nutritional yeast flakes and toss so that all of the tofu is well coated. If you have any leftovers it will keep for a couple of days and makes for a tasty lunch served with brown rice.
  1. Exact measurements are not critical for this recipe. I donu2019t measure the soy sauce, Spike or nutritional yeast when making this dish, however, the above measurements are typically the amounts I use. Some prefer less of one ingredient and some prefer more. Iu2019m very fond of nutritional yeast so I pour it on generously. I think itu2019s the key savory ingredient that makes this dish so tasty.
