Time about an hour
- 1 or 2 bricks firm tofu (about 1 to 2 pounds)
1. Heat the oven to 350°F. Blot the tofu dry with towels and sprinkle it all over with salt. Line a baking sheet or in a large skillet with a sheet of parchment and put the tofu block on top.
2. Bake undisturbed for about 1 hour. The tofu is done when the surface is lightly browned and firm and it releases easily from the pan. Use right away or cool, cover, and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
