This is a great and easy meal and I serve it with a good, warmed bread. Recipe yields several cups of blackened mixture; store in an airtight container. I use this mix on chicken and fish, too. I order organic bulk spices from Mountain Rose Gardens--cheap and fresh!

Extra firm tofu, cut into 1" cubes.
