With a simple marinade and an oven, you can make crispy, flavorful tofu! Slice your tofu into smaller cubes for a poppable, on-the-go snack that’s great warm or cold. Plus, tofu is a amazing source of plant-based protein, with ALL nine essential amino acids! It’s also a great plant-based option for a low carb lifestyle—if you can find sprouted tofu, it tends to be slightly lower in carbs!
