Tofu Heaven - Healthy and Tasty

It was a chilly night and both our pantry and fridge were out of stock. No more eggs, no more veggies, no more fruits. All I have in there were two bottles of Vodka Ice and a bottle of Mudshake (from Halloween's... Actually, we still got 2 cases of San Mig Light and Vodka Ice in there, tsk, tsk)). If I were still my old self, I'd forego eating (or maybe I'd order several dishes from Jollibee) and just drink the Vodka Ice. Unforunately, I can no longer afford to be my old, unhealthy self. This GERD has completely changed my eating habits and has made me more conscious of the food I ingest.

Then I saw this square piece of package at the far end of the chiller. I completely forgot we bought tofu the last time we did the groceries.

What to do with it? I can't just grill it. I can't fry it. I can't put vinegar in it. The feeling of depression over food was slowly returning but I clawed my way back to my happy place and that's when it hit me.

Inside one of our kitchen cabinets were some condiments I can use. I've got a bottle of soy sauce and a half bottle of honey. They're not included in the bad food list. Plus, there are still some tarragon and salt in the pantry. Perfect!

That was the time I invented a new kind of sauce - soy sauce and honey. Now I use it in practically every bland dish I have. Before, I can only relate soy sauce with vinegar and calamansi. This is totally uncharted territory for me. LOL!

So I took off the tofu packaging, placed big block of tofu on a dish, put a bit of salt and tarragon on all sides, and poured my newly invented soy and honey sauce. I placed the whole thing in the oven and baked it for 20 minutes in 250 F degrees. I covered the top with foil so it doesn't get burnt.


It was truly Tofu heaven! Even my hubby loved it! <3 Bon appetit!
