I enjoyed today’s lunch so much that here it is!! Before I went to work this morning I put one fourteen ounce package of firm tofu in the tofu press. The real motivation behind this lunch was to try out this new toy!! The tofu press went into the fridge and was ready to come out when I got home from work four hours or so later. This thing is awesome! Took out just enough water without drying out too much.
I preheated the oven to 425*. Once I drained the tofu, I sliced it into quarter-inch slices. Place on parchment paper (so it doesn’t stick fast) on a baking dish.
Meanwhile, clean and slice one yukon gold potato. I sliced it into thin strips, but if you like steak fries go for it. I tossed the yukon slices in about a tablespoon of olive oil, garlic powder and a little bit of chili powder. They go onto their own baking dish.
At this point, put the two baking dishes into the oven for about twenty minutes. Take them out, and pour some Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce on the tofu. I want to say maybe a quarter cup. Toss gently to coat the tofu throughly. The fries I gently flipped so they got nice and crispy on both sides.
Back in the oven they go for another twenty minutes or so. By now, the tofu should be slightly crispy and the fries crispy and slightly brown. Came out absolutely delish and is so much healthier than the fried wings and fried french fries I would eat out somewhere. My belly was ecstatic and full after half the tofu and the fries! Yes folks I was doing the happy food dance!
