Tray Baked Tofu Two Ways

"TWO-WAY TOFU TODAY :: is it lunch yet? Just popped 2 versions of tofu strips in the oven. Buffalofochicken & lemon-ginger. Tofu is a great option for protein intake whether you're vegetarian, vegan or a carnivore! Originating in China well over a thousand years ago, tofu is made by curdling soymilk so that soymilk proteins become coagulated. The resulting soy curds can then pressed into a sliceable cake, like I've used here! Tofu is an excellent source of calcium and a very good source of manganese, copper, selenium, protein & phosphorus. In addition, tofu is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, iron, magnesium, zinc & vitamin B1. ||"
