Hi chowhounders, I was looking to make lettuce wraps with tofu, PF chang style, and the recipe calls for baked tofu. Any idea what baked tofu is??

    get ready, i'm about to blow your mind.

    it's tofu that has been baked. often in an oven!

    i recommend 375 degrees for 20min or so.

        It's usually pressed and marinated first. :)
        Or you can buy it already baked.

        It is usually marinated--traditionally the marinate is five spice. They are commonly found in Chinese supermarkets with the regular tofu. Whole food also has them in five spice, teriyaki, thai sesame...
