Mexi-Tofu BakeSubmitted by: THOUGHTCRIME9
IntroductionI read about people taking fish and covering it with salsa and then throwing it in the oven. It sounded really tasty minus the fish, so I thought this simple dish up.

Tofu - One Block EXTRA FIRM
1c Salsa of your choice
1/4c Nutritional Yeast (you can use more if you like)
Crushed Tortilla chips or bread crumbs
Non-stick oil of your choice
1/4t Chili Powder
Pinch of Cayenne (optional)
Salt to taste
I also use the Montreal Steak Seasoning on almost everything but that's up to you.
+Preheat oven to 375.
+Slice into six strips (easy for calorie counters). I like to cut it hamburger style but it's your choice.
+Coat casserole dish with non-stick oil.
+Set the tofu in a manner in which the salsa will be able to get in between the strips as well as on top of them.
+Sprinkle the tofu with the spices and a little over half of the Nutritional Yeast. I just make sure it's all evenly distributed.
+Now cover them with salsa, being careful to not knock all of the seasonings off.
+Now cover with the left over Nutritional Yeast and then the Chip Crumbs. This is usually where I throw salt on.
+Bake in the oven at 375 for 25 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. Sometimes I broil it for a few minutes at the end to speed up the process.
+Makes three servings...
Number of Servings: 3

This was great! I made a few modifications - I added chopped mushrooms, green onions and garlic to the salsa. I didn't have chili powder or cayenne, so i just used paprika. and I couldn't find Nutritional Yeast, so I substituted shredded cheddar cheese. It was so yummy and will be making this again! - 10/4/09
