Crispy Tofu Yums
"I guess this would be my grilled chicken breast alternative. I marinate 2 or 3 pounds of tofu and then cook it up in small batches throughout the week. Crispy tofu yums are all about packing tofu with flavor and then coaxing it to a crispy finish for maximum enjoyment. Enjoy on salads, on sandwiches, with veggies, or just eat 'em!"

- Place tofu slices on the baking sheet; pour lemon juice mixture on top. Let tofu marinate for 15 minutes.
- Preheat a large skillet over medium heat; pour in olive oil. Add tofu slices in a single layer. Cover and cook until golden brown on the bottom, 5 to 7 minutes. Flip tofu and continue to cook, covered, until golden brown on the second side, about 5 minutes more. Remove lid and cook uncovered for 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining tofu.
