Simply Good...
So, there is not really a recipe to this one...which is not really my style, but this one is so easy to throw together (and you can use whatever you like) that it is just unnecessary to tie you down to a recipe. I did try a new technique with the tofu that I really liked, though. I am still pretty new to preparing tofu for myself, but I have read quite a few different rules of thumb for texture. I am sad to say that I am the only one in this house that likes tofu, but I will find a way to win the rest of them over one day! I will probably have to slather it in something that makes it totally hidden from it's true form, but I will get them on my side eventually!!! Anyway, I have always sliced the block of tofu and pressed it. This time I froze the block, then microwaved it on defrost for a couple of minutes and then squeezed it out like a sponge. I was so impressed with how easy it was to handle this way! I seriously got so much water out of it!!! Then I sliced it, pressed it with a towel, salt and peppered it and then cooked it in my electric skillet (coated with cooking spray) until golden brown. I loved the texture! It was nice and crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Perfect!!! I left this dish pretty simple. It is just the tofu with grilled zucchini and squash, but I plan to take this technique farther!!!
