Not feeling well and going through my fridge, I wanted something quick and delicious that I didn’t have to fuss over. This was so good I made it again today.In 35-40 minutes you have perfect yumminess that really does taste a lot like chicken. This is great to have on hand- in the fridge as a quick snack, to add to soups, sandwiches or to eat hot with veggies and quinoa or rice for a meal. I am cherry bomb everything right now but you could definitely use another pepper instead, hotter or more mild. The cherry bombs lend a sweetness that is incomparable, the chipotle adds a deep, mellow, spicy that is one of my favorite flavor profiles. I may or may not be having this tonight with smashed potatoes and kale… SIMPLE.
1 Pound tofu, thinly sliced in long cubes, about 1” thick, 2″ long
2-4T Olive oil
1/2t chipotle powder (more or less)
1/2t pink salt (more or less)
1 cherry bomb or jalapeño pepper, sliced, with or without seeds (seeds make it hotter)
2T nutritional yeast
Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a roasting pan or dish, drizzle about 3T of olive oil on the bottom of the pan.
Place the tofu rectangle cubes in the oil. Sprinkle the top with the chipotle powder, then add the sliced peppers on top and then sprinkle the salt, then nutritional yeast. Drizzle the top with more olive oil.
Roast in the oven/ convection oven for 40 minutes or until golden brown.
This tofu is absolutely delicious, hot OR cold.
THIS SHIT TASTES LIKE SPICY CHICKEN
