A classic crispy tofu dish that is good anytime of the year. This baked tofu is served over flavorful sesame noodles
Tofu noodles are something that always sounds good to me. I’m not sure why. But no matter how hot it is outside, whether I have a cold, how I’m feeling or how hungry I am, I think I could always eat some. Kinda weird since I didn’t grow up eating tofu (also weird considering how much I eat nowadays), but that’s how it is.
This recipe has a new take on tofu than many of my past applications – usually I fry it in a mixture of butter and oil until it’s golden brown. This tofu, in fact, is BAKED. Yes, I’m just as surprised as you are. I didn’t do it for health reasons, more like laziness reasons, but I like the way it turned out, and I’ll definitely be trying this method in the future.
As I’m writing this, we even had a very similar thing for dinner tonight. The sesame noodle life is our way of life.
And the best part is, this is great for making ahead, too. I might store it separately from the tofu if you are making a big batch ahead, but it’s great to batch for a delicious, cold lunch.Print
