“An easy, mild flavor marinated, mainly to use in recipes such as stir frys, pasta, noodles, rice, soups and practically anything else, when you want to add a little flavor and texture to otherwise plain tofu. I also find this flavorful enough to eat plain with a little rice and steamed veggies. Time does not include the 30 minute marinade time.”

  1. Cut tofu into 1-inch thick slices. Arrange tofu sliced in a 3 quart rectangular baking dish; set aside. If using dried mushrooms, in a small bowl combine dried mushrooms and enough hot water to cover; let stand for 5 minutes. Drain and rinse mushrooms; chop mushrooms.
