I like to go to the Thai market and pick up a block of their fresh tofu and use the whole thing to make a batch of baked tofu. They are handy to keep in the fridge for snacking on cold, in sandwiches, heated up to eat with other side dishes etc. I make a marinade of olive oil, dijon, soy sauce, garlic powder, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar and black pepper to brush on both sides of the tofu before baking at 400 degrees F for about half an hour, making sure to flip the slices halfway. Always turns out great!
First things I used it for was this spinach salad with green beans and balsamic vinaigrette. Today I used it in a sandwich with toasted bread, Vegenaise, lettuce and tomato. And when I got home from work, I snacked on a slice right out of the fridge. They come out so nice and chewy with lots of flavor from the marinade.
