|A pan of crispy tofu.|
I think tofu gets a bad rap because of its soft texture and the fact that it's often served under-seasoned.
Let's face it, out of the package it is pretty blah. But diced, seasoned and baked in a hot oven, it becomes a flavorful and crispy treat.
My family loves it and I think you will too. It's also good for you and inexpensive. Stay positive and please give tofu a try.
Crispy Oven-Fried Tofu
1 package extra firm tofu
Canola cooking spray
Any additional seasonings of your choice
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment or aluminum foil and spray liberally with the canola cooking spray or the tofu will stick.
Pat the block of tofu dry with a paper towel and cut it into 1/2 to 1-inch squares. Place the tofu on the prepared baking sheet and coat the tofu with the canola cooking spray.

Season the tofu liberally with salt, black pepper and any seasoning of your choice. I like chili powder, cumin and oregano.
Bake in the hot oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until the tofu is brown and crispy.
