Baked Spicy Tofu & Sweet Potato: Recipe
Tofu is one of our regular foods, that is a food that we eat 3 to 4 times per month as a main course. I enjoy baked tofu, tofu stir fry and even have a tofu lasagna recipe which I will share in a later hub.
Except for the lasagna tofu, I prefer to use a firm tofu so that it can be diced or sliced according to the recipe.
By itself, tofu has a rather bland taste but when seasoned properly or marinated it comes alive. I love hot sauces, not the so hot I swear my tongue is going to melt kind, but hot enough to clear my sinuses which can come in handy during the winter months.
There is a ground fresh chili paste that I like to coat the tofu with about 2 hours before baking. It is hot so I only use enough to part some flavour and add more when I sit down to eat.
