Directions

Taken directly from The Grit cookbook

cut tofu into cubes slightly smaller than playing dice. lightly oil a non-stick skillet and place over high heat. allow oil to heat slightly and add tofu. saute, tossing with a non-metal spatula until evenly and lightly golden brown. sprinkle lightly with soy sauce (i skip this step). saute briefly to further brown tofu. remove from skillet, draining and discarding any excess fluid.

rinse and wipe skillet dry, lightly oil and place it over high heat. allow oil to become very hot and add tofu. saute tofu, tossing with a non-metal spatula almost constantly until very well browned. sprinkle with soy sauce to taste. sprinkle with nutritional yeast to coat tofu cubes and, tossing vigorously, saute for a few seconds and remove from heat. serve immediately.

personal tastes with regards to salty soy sauce flavor and amount of nutritional yeast "breading" vary widely. excessive soy sauce will make the tofu too salty, while too much oil and yeast will give a gooey result. at its best, this recipe yields tofu with a slightly crispy, deliciously yeasty exterior and a tender, moist interior.

Shred cheddar cheese on top and put on top of brown rice (not included in calculation). Good with sauteed vegetables!
