    redjonesy's Note:

    I'm not a vegetarian, although I used to be one for 13 years, and even though I eat meat, I like to try to use meat sparingly. I love baked tofu, but most of the recipes I've come across are soy sauce marinades. I love the taste, but the sodium is just to high to do often. While looking for other tofu recipes, I found this one. With this recipe, they suggest sauteing in a pan. However, I like to bake mine. Just put some parchment paper down on a pan and bake until a little golden and crispy (usually about 20-30 min.) This is from the website eatmedelicious.com

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      With a sharp knife, cut tofu, lengthwise into thirds. Place side-by-side on an absorbent towel and cover with an additional towel. Place a heavy pot on top of the towels to get as much water out of the tofu as possible. If you can let it set like that for 20-30 minutes, great. If not, just get out as much water as you can.
    2. 2
      Cut tofu into 1" cubes.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, combine jalapeño, garlic, ginger, salt, pepper, sugar and five-spice powder. Stir well and add tofu cubes. Toss until tofu cubes are well coated on all sides.
    4. 4
      In a large skillet, heat oil and add tofu (and spices). Cook on medium-low heat, 8 minutes, turning cubes every 1-2 minutes. Add green onions and cook an additional 2 minutes, until tofu is golden brown.
