Do you suffer from the “no cheese” blues? If you’re dieting and lactose-intolerant, I’m sure you know what I mean. Cheese is a high calorie food, and non-cow cheeses are high in cost. Other people can grab some ordinary cheese for a snack while you and I just sigh with longing.
To counter these blues, you might consider baked tofu. When you let the tofu bask in a tangy marinade before baking, you end up with a tasty, cheap, low-calorie, and easy-to-make protein alternative that you can grab as a snack or chop up and add to a salad.
Note: I also recently packed up some of this bake for an airplane trip to Florida. Our plane from Ottawa was late to Newark, and we didn’t get a chance to have dinner. We arrived in Florida at midnight and, thanks to tofu along with some fruit and pistachio nuts, we didn’t starve!
