Here's how I do it.

[No reason it couldn't be baked, though...]



1 lb waterpack firm Tofu, frozen at least 12 hours, then thawed
3 cups water
2 Tbs vegetarian "beef" bouillon powder (or 2 cubes)
1 tsp mushroom soy sauce, or regular soy sauce
Pinch of garlic powder
Pinch of onion powder
1 tsp sugar or equivalent
1/8 tsp Liquid Smoke (optional)
Vegetable Oil

Put water, bouillon, soy sauce, spices, sugar, and Liquid Smoke in a saucepan.
Bring to a gentle boil.
Gently press liquid from thawed Tofu.
Crumble Tofu into small bits.
Put Tofu bits into broth, and turn heat to medium simmer.
Cover pan. Cook gently 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Drain Tofu well. Save broth for soups and gravies.

[NOTE: If you are not going to use the Tofuburger right away,
store it in a container in the fridge, covered with some of the broth.]

To Use: Heat some oil in a heavy frying pan.
Drain Tofuburger.
Add drained Tofuburger to pan, and stir-fry until browned.

Use in recipes in place of browned, cooked hamburger.

'Meat' Pies, Pizza Toppings, etc. etc. etc...
