Tofu Makeover

Tonight is a leftover night! I have some fried tofu chunks leftover that were meant to be served in a sweet and sour sauce with crushed peanuts. I couldn’t save the sauce yesterday, but I didn’t mind because I knew I would want to re-work the tofu.


Tofu Makeover (this will work with fresh tofu as well, and will probably bake well)

About 2 blocks fried tofu
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp soy sauce
juice of 1/2 lime
olive oil

I minced the garlic and cut the tofu into smaller chunks and put it into a bowl. Then, I added the soy sauce and lime, and mixed it all in a bowl. I fired up a pan, heated up some olive oil, and then heated the tofu for about 3-5 minutes until the tofu was heated through.

I also had leftover spicy vegetables, so I served the tofu with that and white rice. Easy and yummy recipe!

Mmmmm…. veggies!!! –Melissa

    Fried tofu is definitely a weakness of mine, like some people have a weakness for chocolate cake or potato chips.
