Sesame and Sriracha Baked Tofu

IMG_7929

Months after deciding to stop being a pescatarian and just limit my intake of meat, I noticed that I’ve been eating A LOT of meat lately.  This mostly has come in the form of burgers (I LOVE YOU IN-N-OUT), which is weird because I don’t usually eat burgers that much.  Speaking of burgers, I should find a recipe to make some…

I digress.  The point is that I realized I’m becoming carnivorous and I don’t like it.  So I spent an entire Sunday morning in bed looking up tofu recipes that I want to make and I came across this one!  It combines two of my favorite ingredients (Sriracha and sesame oil) and just looked super easy.  I already had everything I needed, except the motivation to get out of bed and cook.  Definitely a personal problem.

So to my meat-eating readers, I apologize for bringing back tofu to the blog.  I’ll be kind and make it up to you soon 🙂
