Sesame Baked Tofu from Stephanie Weaver | Gluten-free, vegan, unprocessedLuscious, savory roasted tofu

This is a luscious, savory way to make tofu. It’s good as a main dish and in sandwiches. I purchased this from the Whole Foods deli and it was so amazing I saved the ingredients label so I could recreate it.

vegan, gluten-free, reduced-sugar diets

Could this be migraine-friendly?

This recipe is tricky, as it’s from my days before I was diagnosed and was eating plant-based. Here’s why this recipe isn’t migraine-friendly:

  • Tofu (soy)
  • Rice wine vinegar
  • Bragg’s / tamari > omit, could try 2 tbsp coconut aminos once you have tested them

If you have never had extra-firm tofu, give it a try. It's much less wimpy and much meatier than regular tofu. I buy only two kinds of tofu: Silken for desserts and extra-firm or super-firm for everything else.
