Lemon Pepper Tofu Fillets

Tofu can be delicious! The keys are to press as much of the water out of it as you can before you do anything, and to season it well. Tofu doesn’t have a strong flavor on its own, so it’s basically a blank canvas for whatever flavors you like! This recipe is a simple way to dress it up, but don’t let that fool you. It’s big on taste! These lemon pepper tofu fillets will not disappoint.
