Not to be confused with the eponymous Filipino dish, this tofu recipe is inspired by the ubiquitous (and now infamous) Goya Adobo seasoning. It’s great in a burrito bowl or in tacos. Feel free to change up the seasonings with what you have and like.
- 1 block extra firm tofu
- 2 tablespoons neutral oil such as avocado or canola
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
Generous spices to taste
- Smoked paprika
- Ground cumin
- Kosher salt
- Freshly cracked black pepper
- Garlic powder
- Preheat the oven to 400° F (convection if you have it). Press your tofu (it's super easy to do if you don't know how - just google it) for about 10 minutes -- it doesn't have to be the MOST dry.
- Dry off the tofu and crumble into irregular pieces.
- Mix in with the oil, cornstarch and spices, and spread out onto a large baking sheet.
- Bake in the oven about 20 minutes, or until crispy. If desired, leave the tofu in the warm oven turned off for an additional 10 minutes (for extra crisp!)
