Crispy Tofu Fingers

Victoria Harrison told her workshop crowd at Vegetarian Summerfest that this recipe "is turning more people (including children) onto tofu than any recipe we know. It's super simple, too."

12 ounces extra-firm tofu
4 ounces thick sauce (vegetarian oyster-style sauce, sweet and sour sauce, barbecue sauce or other favorite)
1 teaspoon vegetable oil.
Salt, garlic powder or other seasonings as desired.

Coat a cookie sheet with oil. Slice tofu lengthwise, about 1/4 inch thick, and pat dry. Put the sauce into a dish, and dip each piece of tofu into the sauce, coating it well. (She used barbecue sauce, and it was tasty.) Place the tofu on the cookie sheet in a single layer. (Pieces can be touching, but should not overlap.) Sprinkle on desired seasoning. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes, depending on how crispy you like it. Some people like it very chewy, while others prefer it when it's still soft. Makes 2 to 4 servings.
