More Old Favorites

I wanted tofu for dinner, but didn't want to stand over the stove frying it, so I unearthed a recipe Selma used to love as a toddler (and I always loved it too!) It's sesame baked tofu from The Lucky Palate a meal delivery service I used to work with. My friend and former owner and chef, Devra Gartenstein has a cookbook, The Accidental Vegan that spells out this simple, but yummy and "grounding" as Dev says, recipe. I always adapt it a bit using more tahini, less soy sauce, a little water--I baked almost 2 pounds of tofu, so I'll have leftovers for lunch tomorrow. The great thing about it is, it's low-mess--you can mix the sauce in the baking pan, and then just put the tofu in make sure it's coated and put it in the oven.

I served it with basmati rice and haricots verts (which Selma steamed herself, she was very proud).

Anyone else have baked tofu recipes they love?
