  • 2 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1 tsp. dried basil

  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  • Dip the baked tofu in a mixture of 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard with 1 Tbsp. liquid honey per person.
  • Serve with sautéed veggies.
  • Add turmeric to give your honey mustard dip some extra kick.
