I made these for our family with a 3yo and they were a hit. Simple and easy to eat. I did have to cook them longer, almost double the time to get them firm enough to eat with little fingers.

My kids both ate this and it was a 5 min recipe to make. I added some vegan cheese on top for them and it made it a bit
tastier. We're 2 kids and 2 adults, I only had a little bit, but it didn't make enough. I'd use 2 blocks of tofu instead of only one. You could use it as snack next day, or put it on a salad.

I used tomato paste mixed with garlic powder, onion powder and dried basil. I love it warm or cold.

I also added a vegan cheese (Daiya) and mushrooms! I love it!!!!!!!!!!!! I just hate to clean the wire rack after I'm done. I eat it in a bowl with spoon. :P

This was the best way to eat tofu that I have ever had. I also added some veggie cheese and some Italian seasoning. This will be my go to lunch with a big salad. I put my strips on parchment paper and slide it on the rack. The bottoms of the slices were firm not browned but tasted great.

I might try this made on a homemade pizza crust.

Love this for lunch with a salad. First time I made the recipe I added a half slice of thin red onion and a big slice of mushroom. That took a long time to cook. Good but wasn't cooked enough. Now I water saute the onions and mushrooms first before adding to tofu and sauce. It is one of our favorite meals. Great to have on hand for a quick snack.

I make this a lot except I add mushrooms and use diced tomatoes with a sprinkle of nutritional yeast and spinach.  Mmmm...I am drooling just thinking about it!  Thanks Doc!

I made 3 packs of tofu for my family of 6. Baked the tofu on parchment paper first for 10 min on each side and then loaded it up with toppings and baked again for 5 min. They were well received by 5/6 of us.

Great receipe, very tasty.  At Saddlebrook, I thought I heard that Dr. Fuhrman say that he places the tofu bites into a dehumidifier to get them extra chewy.  Has anyone tried that?  How did it go?  How long did you keep them in the dehumidifier.  Thanks for the info.  Mathew

You can use a dehydrator.  Slice the tofu very thin, sprnkle with your choice of salt-free seasoning and dehydrate at about 125 degrees F for 6 hours or until desired texture.
