ROASTED TOFU

“Humans are the only part of creation that can refuse to show up by wearing a mask.  Then we forget that we were pretending.”

I bet when you saw the heading on this post your little heart went pitter patter.  Or not.  But believe me, whenever I serve roasted tofu the hesitant tasters turn into enthusiastic consumers.  When roasted tofu is chopped into a stir fry, adding protein and a nutty flavor, people are too busy eating and talking about religion, sex, and politics to notice its existence.  Conversation is the key.

INGREDIENTS:

Tofu, a block of firm, cut into slices

1/2 cup toasted sesame oil

1/2 cup soy sauce

DISTRUCTIONS:

In a plastic container mix together equal parts of the oil and soy sauce.  Whisking it together will do the job.  Place the tofu into the mixture and place in the refrigerator overnight.  This is your chance to watch reality TV or shampoo the cat.  Life is filled with choices.

Sometime the next day, preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Place the tofu on a baking sheet and bake for about an hour or more, flipping the slices over about every 15 minutes so they brown nicely on both sides.

Here’s the finished product ready to snack on as is or to slice and dice for a nourishing addition to a meal.

Be aware that tofu is one of the most controversial foods with people on both ends of the good vs bad spectrum.  Also be aware that humans have an overinflated idea of how much of life they can control.

I enjoy roasted tofu and eat it on occasion.  I also enjoy a few scrumptious desserts and occasionally enjoy those, in spite of the ravaging effects that sugar has on the human body.  My motto is moderation in everything, including moderation.  Or is my motto never pet a burning dog?  Looking for a new motto.  Any suggestions out there?
