One of my favourite vegan cook books is "Vegan Brunch" by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. My partner was browsing through it and came across this super easy recipe and was keen to try it out, as he loves lemon pepper.
Finding lemon pepper that is vegan and gluten free, was a bit of a challenge, which surprised us both. We did, however, find in the supermarket, lemon pepper by MasterFoods which fit all the criteria.
What you will need:
450g extra firm tofu, sliced into approx 8 pieces, widthwise
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp tamari/soy sauce/Bragg Liquid Aminos (you can find the last one listed, in some healthfood shops)
2 garlic cloves (optional)
2 tbsp lemon pepper
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius. Spray a baking sheet with cooking oil.
Poke each slice of tofu with a fork 3 to 4 times.
Drizzle the olive oil and tamari on a plate. Grate or mince garlic into the mix. Dredge each slice of tofu through the mix and then lay out on a plate. Sprinkle half of the lemon pepper over the slices and give a quick rub into the tofu. Flip the slices and repeat with the remaining lemon pepper and rub in. Aim to spend about 15 seconds on each slice, rubbing in the lemon pepper.
Place slices on in a single layer on the baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes on one side. Flip over and bake for another 10 minutes.
Serve with a salad, use in sandwiches, burritos, etc.
