    @ clovia, you can buy baked tofu at a healthfood store, but it's pretty salty. I prefer to drain and freeze mine, then defrost and bake. It makes the tofu firmer Anyway, great recipe! Thanks

    Nice and simple. The first time I made this it was a tad too vinegar-y for me, so I only used 1.5 tsp the next time. Surprisingly complex flavor for a dish so easy to make (assuming you've already made your tofu).

    so simple, yet so flavorful! The dressing was just right and the baked tofu recipe made the tofu seem hearty and filling. A great way to start the 3rd week and final stretch...
