Hi funchy: Spike seasoning is a brand that makes cooking spices. You can find it at most grocery stores and markets. However, you can also make your own spices blend by combining ground black pepper, salt, oregano, thyme, paprika, etc... or whatever you fancy.

I've tasted this mock chicken tofu dish, and I was definitely impressed. The tofu has slight crunch, and the flavor profile resembles a bit like a salted chicken, except it's golden tofu and better! This dish goes well with some rice or grains. Try it!

What is "spike" seasoning? What kind of seasoning is it? Where can I buy it? Is there a more common equivalent?

I just used this recipe and made "chicken" tacos! I put the "chicken," avocado, salsa, and lettuce in a couple warm whole wheat tortillas. Yummmmyy!!! Great recipe, thanks! :)

I made this dish for my girlfriend the other day, and we loved it. Problems I had were my pan was too small to accommodate all of the tofu properly and the stove at the place i rent is horrible, so it took a little longer, and I found using firm tofu still may be a little too soft. I'm going to try again using extra firm and see how that goes, but flavor wise no complaints. I didn't bother using the measurements listed on here, as eyeballing it made it more comfortable to me. My preparation consisted of simultaneously cooking red bell peppers and yellow squash in another pan, with the same exact process as the tofu. Eventually I combined them and cooked them together, serving them on a dish with three Belgian endives. Delicious.
