DIRECTIONS

  • NOTE: It is very important to press and dry the tofu well, otherwise, this will be a big sloppy mess instead of crumbles.
  • Combine all ingredients EXCEPT TOFU in a pan and simmer gently for 5-10 minutes, just until the sauce becomes slightly thick.
  • Set aside the sauce to cool a bit.
  • While the sauce is cooling, crumble the pressed and dried tofu into a bowl.
  • Toss the tofu with a bit of the cooled sauce, adding sauce in small increments until the tofu is uniformly colored, but with no liquid at the bottom of the bowl.
  • You will have some leftover sauce that you can refrigerate and use later.
  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Put parchment down on a sheet pan and carefully spread the sauced tofu on it.
  • Bake until the tofu looks dry and a bit crumbly, but be careful not to overcook or burn it.
  • As the tofu bakes, turn it over occasionally with a spatula to help the "drying" process.
  • Baking should take at least 20 minutes, but may take much longer depending on how well you were able to press out the water.
  • When the tofu crumbles appear sufficiently dry, take them out of the oven and add them to sauteed peppers, bean sprouts, celery, mushrooms, spinach, eggs, or whatever!
  • Enjoy!
