Ghetto Curried Tofu Slabs

What you need: 

1 pound firm tofu, sliced
splash soy sauce
curry powder, to taste
1 clove garlic, chopped, optional

What you do: 

1. Put tofu in a microwave bowl and heat up for about 1 1/2 minutes.
2. Put a splash of soy sauce in with the tofu and as much curry as you want.
3. Add in the garlic, if using. Microwave for 2-3 more minutes, and enjoy!

Preparation Time: 
5 minutes
Cooking Time: 
Servings: 
1-6

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I was a doubter!  But this was suuuuuper easy to make and I looooved the texture.  I'll try it again with bbq sauce/sweet and sour/general tao/etc  :)

I confirm the tastiness of this recipe with soy sauce and curry powder. Although, it would be nice if the tofu was more dry and firm, similar to a chicken nugget. I suppose you drain it first? Very tasty!  :D

I was thankful that I was finally able to use my steak seasoning for this (instead of curry powder), but this method of cooking tofu just isn't for me. I'm not a big fan of the texture, I suppose. I had to fry it until it got a bit crispy. Oh well. Thanks for sharing this good idea!

Are you even from the ghetto, kid?

So were these curried tofu slabs actually concocted in a ghetto?  Or is that your preferred adjective to describe low budget or easy? 

My two cents: Ghettos are real and shouldn't be made light of.

This was so yummy! I added teriyaki sauce and used garlic powder instead of a clove, since I didn't have any. Also, I threw in some mushrooms. This recipe would go well with anything!
It was good!  ;)b

Nuked some tofu and fresh mushrooms, seasoned with a little soy sauce and garlic cloves (outta the jar). Threw it all in a whole wheat pita spread with peanut butter - WHAM! Small, quick, tasty, protein-packed meal that really sticks to your ribs!  :D  ;)b

This is good when you've just gotten home from work and are starving for something protein rich quick.  I wouldn't serve it to anyone, but it is tasty enough.  I leave out the garlic and used frozen pressed tofu.

Ghetto-ness aside, this was PERFECT. I had only a few minutes to make dinner and a hungry guest to feed, so while the tofu was in the microwave (I suggest thin slabs and did 5 min), I toasted some bread and mashed an avocado spread (with garlic salt, lime juice and veganaise). Open-face sammiches that had a full taste (not too bland) from walking-in-the-kitchen to dinner-on-my-plate in under 10 minutes.

I still have some for lunch today - will probably eat it on a bagel and take photos if I can find a camera at work. Thanks for this straightforward and excellent dinner suggestion!
