Born out of laziness and the unbearable heat we had last weekend. I decided that I could only handle making one thing at night using heat in my cracker-box apartment for my bento prep for the week, so this is what I went for: Spicy Baked Tofu -1 block of drained and pressed firm Tofu, thinly sliced -5 Tablespoons of Dark Soy Sauce -2 Tablespoons of Sriracha -1 Tablespoon of dried Red Pepper -2 Tablespoons of Lime Juice ****Note: This very spicy, if you don't like that much heat add less Sriracha and Red Pepper or more Lime Juice**** Mix the wet ingredients in a container to make a sauce, flip the slices of tofu in the sauce (there should be some left over). Place on a baking sheet greased with cooking spray. Bake at 325 F for 15 minutes. Take out of the oven and flip them over pouring/spooning the rest of the sauce on top, and bake another 10 minutes. This has been really good as a sandwich topping (along with some cucumber, bell pepper, and dijon mustard) but it could be used in a non-sandwich bento just as easily.
