baked tofu

i've had a few requests for this's easy!

1 package firm tofu*
2-3 T. bragg's liquid aminos**
1 t. each garlic powder, sage, thyme, basil

preheat oven to 475. drain tofu, cut into 1/2 inch cubes. put into a container with other ingredients. put on lid and let marinate for 15 minutes or so. oil a flat baking dish (large enough for all tofu to fill in one layer). cook tofu for 15 minutes, take out pan and shake a little to move tofu around a bit. cook for additional 15 minutes. done. can cook a little longer if you like a chewier texture.

* i like to use nasoya firm tofu, in the red package. do not use silken tofu of any kind.
** i like bragg's but you can also use soy sauce if you like. experiment with other marinades for a variety of tastes (barbecue, italian dressing) as well as your seasonings. enjoy!
