This sauce recipe began in my mind as something different… :-/ Nevertheless the sauce turned out flavorful. The sauce itself is gluten-free, soy-free etc. but in this recipe, I did use it atop a sandwich – Tofu ALT (pictured above) – which clearly has both. This sauce has been also used over rice with tofu (pictured below) which is a gluten-free version. I prepared the tofu the same in both cases. This sauce is also nice on some veggies or fries. Enjoy! 🙂

Oven Baked Tofu
1 (14oz Pkg) Extra Firm Tofu, drained/pressed
Course Sea Salt
Fresh Ground Black Pepper
Smoked Paprika
Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Directions:
-Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. -Remove tofu from package, if you have a press go for it. If not, let tofu drain on a paper towel then pat dry. Cut tofu into eighths – first cutting in half diagonal then cutting those pieces in four. Press again with paper towel to dry.
-There were no measurements included with the seasonings. I just simply drizzled a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil then rubbed in the course sea salt, sprinkled some Pepper and Paprika. Flip over and do the same on the opposite side.
-Place on baking sheet drizzle a little more olive oil – about a capful – over tofu and bake for 30 minutes. Flip over after 20 minutes. Crisp & Delish – Enjoy!

Building the Tofu ALT:
-Spread the Paprika sauce on each side of bread.
