Every once in a while I get really busy I have to step back and not make dinner, the other day Addison asked if she could put dinner together. She has really taken an interest in cooking and has good fundamental skills, patience, and a good sense of making things taste "right".
The only skill she is lacking is knowing how long it will take to prepare something, and I consider myself lacking in that department sometimes. She likes to make super thin baked tofu. It is good for building knife and oven skills. This is what she did:
2 lbs of firm nigari tofu - sliced about 1/8 of an inch thick
Brushed with the following:
- Soy Sauce
- Veggie oil
Then baked on parchment paper at 350 for about 20 minutes or until curling or browning at the edges.
The goal is to caramelize the edges, without burning the tofu. The glaze becomes more intense as it loses moisture.
The final plate included steamed broccoli, steamed jasmine rice, and crispy baked kale (courtesy of Nikki).
