It's Tofu Time!

I'm on a tofu kick!  Made from soybeans, tofu is a high protein food that can be cooked in a variety of different ways. My older sister, Marisa, let me borrow her cookbook from People's Food Market, a vegetarian co-op located in the Ocean Beach area of San Diego, CA.  The following recipe is a rendition of People's "Italian Style Nuggets," a satisfying and flavorful way to make tofu. 



2 packages of firm tofu

1/4th cup of olive oil

2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar

1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce

1 teaspoon basil

1 teaspoon oregano

1/4th teaspoon thyme

1/2 teaspoon black pepper



1. Preheat oven for 375°

2. Cube tofu and place in 10 x 12 inch baking dish

3. Mix the rest of the ingredients together in a separate bowl

4. Pour the ingredients over the tofu

5. Mix well

6. Bake for 60 minutes, stirring every 20 minutes

(for crispier nuggets, bake for about an hour & a half)
