That’s right. It’s tofu time! There’s got to be a way!
I’m not a “savory breakfast” kind of girl. Veggies in the a.m.? No can do. With the versatility of tofu, though, I couldn’t help thinking – why do we always turn tofu into something savory? Why not try turning it into something sweet?
Or, maybe I just had French toast sticks on my mind, and thought maybe tofu would make a good imposter.
Oh yeah, I went there. I tossed tofu in a tablespoon of melted, coated it in sugar and cinnamon, and baked it!
The result had breakfast written all over it.
A little pure maple syrup on the side? Don’t mind if I do!
Very yummy. Reminded me of French toast sticks, but more chewy. Next time I make this, I’m going to marinate the tofu in some sort of maple syrup marinade first. I didn’t do any marinating this time – just use a block of plain pressed tofu. I’d like even MORE of the sweet flavor to come through!
I suspect that these tofu sticks would make for a filling breakfast alongside some fruit. I should be able to prove that theory shortly!
Rise and shine – it’s tofu time!
