Bake it in the oven

Tofu can be a great substitute for meat in your cooking. You only have to figure out what your favorite method for cooking it is. One of the easiest ways to prepare tofu is by baking it in the oven.

Then, soak it in your desired seasoning and chop it into 1-inch chunks. Finally, place them on a baking sheet and bake at 425 degrees until they're browned.
