Scott's Spicy Tofu Crisps

Thanks to Scott for the recipe.

Spicy Tofu Crisps

1 entire bulb of garlic smashed and chopped (chopped garlic from a jar is OK)
1 package of firm tofu
sesame oil
cayenne pepper
teriyaki sauce (soy, tamari or Bragg’s can be substituted)
sesame seeds

Cut the tofu into 1/4” slices and place between two towels. Press the water out of the tofu by putting a cutting board on top of the towels – and then something heavy on the cutting board. Set aside for 10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place several tablespoons of sesame oil on a cookie sheet. Lightly coat each rectangle of tofu and spread out on cookie sheet. Edges of tofu can touch if necessary. Lightly douse the tofu with teriyaki sauce (about a teaspoon per rectangle). Cover each rectangle of tofu with garlic, sesame seeds and a dash of cayenne (to taste). Bake in oven until garlic and tofu begins to brown (about 30 minutes).
