1 lb. extra-firm regular tofu (NOT silken)
about 1/8 cup soy sauce
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Slice tofu 1/4-inch thick. Brush each slice, back and front, with soy sauce and allow it to marinate for 10 minutes.
Place on a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake for 30-35 minutes, turning once halfway through, until a deep, golden brown and crispy on the outside but still tender on the inside. Remove from oven.
If using in a stir-fry, cut each slice of tofu into 8 cubes and add to stir-fry near the end.
For sushi, cut tofu lengthwise into about 6 thin strips. Roll up with rice in nori rolls.
Slices of baked tofu are great served with a "chicken-style" or mushroom gravy.
Add 1 tsp. sesame oil to the soy sauce for a great addition to stir-fries.
Add 1/4 tsp. of poultry seasoning or rosemary for a vegan turkey substitute.
