Smoky Spice Crusted Tofu

Smoky Spice Crusted Tofu Smoky Spice Crusted Tofu

Very simple, quick and easy recipe. Might even coax some non-tofu people to give it a try. The slices are coated with a gentle smoky spice mixture and cooked in a blackened Cajun style to a lightly crispy exterior then finished with a honey lemon glaze. Great color and great flavor to an otherwise humble protein. Try to find smoked paprika if you can or add a few drops of liquid smoke to the marinade.
