Tofu - the Unsung Hero!

Hey everyone, I've only recently (past month or two) really gotten into cooking for myself. One item I have been experimenting with to some extent is extra-firm tofu. I've found one really easy way to cook it that I enjoy and love, but I need MORE! Specifically I like it in bite-size morsels, and as crunchy as I can get it. I prefer not to cook with oils because I have bad skin and the smell always makes me nauseous. Also, I want to hear why you love tofu! I work/play with mostly tech-type nerds and gamers who are all disgustingly proud of their horrible eating habits, lack of cooking skills, and will choose a Golden Corral steak over expertly prepared tofu just out of spite. I need some more ammo to hurl at them as I stuff their faces with delicious tofu. I will say though that it is bad to preach to people and argue with them based on their choice of food because we wouldn't want anyone to do that to us! So I will say now that i am a bad person and argue sometimes - but in my defense they are boys and don't know any better! My recipe: Drain and slice the tofu. Stick in small frying pan, add about a 1/4 inch of Newman's Own Sesame Ginger Lite Salad Dressing. Cook, flipping occasionally, until brown on at least two sides! The end! It is especially tasty if some of the salad dressing clumps into gooey bits and burns a little bit. Mmmmmmm...
