 The last time I tried to cook tofu, I burned it and it was gross. I had it again at a Japanese restaurant, and it was delicious. While I still have not figured out how to re-create it, I did make this great recipe.
 The tofu is super flavorful, so I have included a 'recipe' for simple stir fried veggies. They taste great over rice or noodles, and really balance the meal.

 Baked tofu:
16 oz package firm tofu, drained and pressed
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup water
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 Tablepoons toasted sesame oil

 Slice the tofu into 1/4-1/2 inch slices, and press again. While it is pressing, mix all of the other ingredients together in a shallow baking dish. Place the tofu slices into the sauce, cover and refrigerate for 3-12 hours turning once.

 Preheat the over to 375 F. Remove the tofu slices to a lightly oiled baking sheet. Cook in the oven into firm and golden- about 45 minutes- flip twice.

 Stir-fried veggies:
1 1/2 cups matchsticked veggies of your choice (I use a mix of broccoli, carrots, sweet pepper, zucchini, bok choy, and onion)

 Heat about 1 tablspoon veggie oil in a pan over high heat. Pour in the veggies. Cook and stir over high heat until crisp-tender. Becuase stir frying is done over such high heat, be careful NOT to burn the veggies! You just want them to be slightly soft. Serve over rice or noodles.

 Anyone want to help me with that other tofu recipe? It was served over yakisoba noodles and vegetables. It seemed to be a medium-soft tofu, lightly breaded with a sweet crispy coating and lightly fried. It was very lightly cooked, with a delicious sweet taste in it. Any ideas?

I'm betting the breading is panko crumbs. Try that to start, shallow-fried. I don't know about the sweet taste. Maybe panko crumbs are sweet, I've never used them.

 thanks! I have never heard of panko crumbs... I guess it's time to try something new Smiley
