This recipe has succeeded in turning more people into tofu lovers than any recipe I know of.  Even children will love this one.  It's super simple too!



12 oz. extra firm tofu
4 oz. thick sauce (vegetarian oyster, sweet and sour , BBQ or other favorite - I used my Asian Salad Dressing
1 tsp vegetable oil - I skip this and use parchment paper instead
to taste:  salt, pepper, garlic powder or any other seasoning
peanut sauce


Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Slice tofu lengthwise, about 1/4 in. thick, and pat dry. cut each slice into strips.
Put sauce into a dish, and lay the pieces of tofu into the sauce and cover with more.  Cover with saran wrap and store in the frig.

When you are ready, preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Place the tofu strips in a single layer on the parchment paper.  The pieces should not be touching.
Sprinkle on the seasonings, generously. 
Bake for 20-30 minutes ( I prefer 30), depending on how crispy you like it. 
Some people like it very chewy, while others prefer it when it's still soft.
Serve with peanut sauce for dipping.
