Blackened Tofu


Tidbits:

I often hear that tofu is strange tasting or bland. But with these spices and a bit of oil, they are perfect light addition to lunch or dinner and is an amazingly fast preparation.

Ingredients:

Hard or firm tofu, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
Blackening seasoning (there are many recipes available which are mix of paprika, thyme, onion and garlic powder, granulated sugar, salt, pepper, cayenne, oregano, cumin and nutmeg, but I just used a packet)
Salt
Pepper
Olive oil/grapessed oil 1 tbl.

Directions:

1. Sprinkle tofu slices with blackening seasoning and set in refrigerator until ready to cook.
2. Heat up skillet or pan with oil just to coat pan lightly (may be less/more than 1 tbl) at medium/high heat.
3. Season tofu slices with more salt/pepper and place in sizzling skillet
4. Cook on both sides for about 1-2 minutes until lightly browned.
5. Enjoy!
