Tofu is amazingly versatile and adaptable. It absorbs the flavors of the ingredients it’s paired with and works in a variety of cooking methods.

Tofu is normally soft and crumbly, but broiling it toughens the protein and pulls out excess moisture, giving the tofu a firm texture. Preheat the broiler, and then arrange the tofu in a single layer on a foil-lined jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray; broil the tofu for 14 minutes or until it’s golden.
