Tofu sticks with Turmeric & Ginger

Sometimes, I like to look at my old recipes and renew them giving them a new unique touch. After the success of my tofu sticks with the aroma of thyme, I decided to create a new version of this recipe giving it an oriental feel. It is an easy and delicious recipe, perfect for a Phase 2 snack for vegans and Lacto-ovo vegetarians.
