3. Bake at 375 until heated through, about 20 minutes. Serve with rice.


Tips: Recipe may be doubled. We used Lite Tofu that had been previously frozen, which was delicious.
Options: Bake for 10 minutes, top with thinly sliced red pepper, then return to oven for 10 minutes.
We enjoyed this with sweet potato fries rather than rice.
