How to make it
- Unwrap the tofu and shake off any excess moisture. Place the tofu in a freezer bag or wrap well in plastic, then freeze the sealed tofu for at least 24 hours.
- The next day, thaw the tofu by placing it—unwrapped—into a microwave-safe bowl. Cover the bowl and microwave on high, checking every 2 to 3 minutes to make sure the tofu doesn’t cook. Once thoroughly defrosted, gently squeeze out any excess moisture and cut into 1-inch cubes.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- In a shallow bowl, add the bread crumbs and spices, mixing well. In a separate bowl, pour 1/2 cup of water.
- Dip each piece of tofu first into the water, lightly shake off any excess water, and then coat with the seasoned bread crumbs.
- Put the breaded tofu cubes on a lightly oiled baking pan and baked 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown and crisp.
- Serve with a dipping sauce such as sweet and sour or barbecue, or spicy mustard.

Thanks for the great tip on the tofu freezing. Can't wait to try this. Bet my Daddy, a vegetarian, will love these. Much cheaper than buying the vege-chicken too.

These were pretty good. A bit garlicky, but I like garlic, and wasn't using exact measurements, so maybe I just put in a bit more than the recipe called for. Either way I enjoyed them. Great with ketchup!
