  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Cut the tofu into about 4 even slices. Cut those slices into Adipose shapes with two legs, arms, and rounded head.
  • Drizzle extra virgin olive oil and tamari into an 8 x 8 inch baking dish. Tilt the dish, so that the bottom is evenly coated. Put the tofu slices into the dish, making sure each side gets coated. Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, and flip the tofu slices. Pour lemon juice into the dish. Grind black pepper evenly over the slices. Bake the tofu for 20 more minutes.
  • Remove the tofu from oven. Move to a serving plate or on top of bowtie pasta salad.
  • Top each Adipose tofu slice with 2 capers for eyes and a kalamata slice mouth.


*If you don't have access to vacuum packed tofu, use water packed tofu instead. Drain and press a 14 ounce block of tofu, and it will get you to the right size. Here's more info on how to press tofu.
