lemon pepper tofu*

This recipe is from The Vegan Brunch by Isa Chandra Moscowitz. As she says in the book it is ridiculously easy. It has only 5 ingredients and is delicious. I serve it alongside mashed potatoes and broccoli for dinner and also in salads and sandwiches. If you have never made tofu before this recipe is the perfect one to try. You will love it.

1 pound extra firm tofu
2 t olive oil
1 t soy sauce or Bragg Liquid Aminos
2 garlic cloves minced or microplaned
2 T lemon pepper w/salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheet lightly w/cooking spray. Slice tofu into about 8 slices and prick each slice with a fork 3 or 4 times. Combine first 4 ingredients on a plate and dredge tofu pieces in mixture. Place tofu onto baking sheet and sprinkle lemon pepper on top, flip over slices and sprinkle more pepper. Bake for 20 minutes on one side, flip over and bake another 10 minutes.
Notes: This is how the recipe appears in the book. I don't prick the tofu and I pretty much double the marinade ingredients for the amount of tofu used I also slice the tofu thinner, so I have more pieces. I use Trader Joes lemon pepper. It comes in a grinder and is delicious.

  1. This recipe sounds wonderful-I tried sneaking in some tofu to my guys once before but they figured it out but, I'm going to try again. Sometimes it's hard cooking a meal for me and one for them but I'm trying my hardest to get them to come around to eat the way I do. Tonight we're having beef stew with no beef! Can't wait to see their expressions!
