I’m not always a big fan of tofu — usually it’s just boring. Dusting the cubes with Chinese Five Spice powder and then roasting it didn’t make the tofu exactly exciting, but it did make it tasty, and gave it a very un-tofu-like, almost crunchy texture. Quite nice with shoyu enhanced with garlic and ginger (which I packed in a very small Nalgene bottle that isn’t shown).
