Two Dollar Tuesday: Tofu Attempts

I hope everyone had a nice Easter! Mine was spent on the way back from Rochester NY from a visit to my sister, which will culminate in a delcious post tomorrow highlighting our meals. 

Back to today, which involved some experimenting. While I would not classify my attempt at making a copycat tofu recipe as a failure, it definitely needs tweaking before being revealed to occasionally harshly opinionated public, aka you readers.

I’ve always loved Wildwoods Savory Baked Tofu, enough that I happily eat it straight cold from the package. I glanced at the ingredients one day and was surprised to see all the ingredients were things I had in my fridge and pantry: tofu, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, mustard, apple juice, sesame oil, onion powder, and garlic powder. 

 I’m now on a mission to recreate this amazing tofu with such a simple (and cheap!) ingredients list. I made some today, guessing measurements based on the listed order of the ingredients. After baking, the texture was spot on  but the flavor wasn’t perfect. The marinade smelled like the real deal, but the finished product lacked too much flavor for me to be happy. 

My next grocery trip will involve buying a few packages of tofu though because I am determined to have this recipe prepared for next week.

As a bonus, here’s a picture of the lone bunny left from some Easter chocolates I made.
