Versatile Baked Tofu

It's always difficult for a non-vegetarian to find good tofu recipes. In my attempt to try and find something that both vegetarians and carnivores will like, here is a delicious recipe I stumbled upon on a vegetarian blog. Since I didn't have everything the author called for, I've omitted some ingredients Tasted great, was quite easy to make and can be eaten with a variety of sides! In addition to a pack of extra firm tofu, you'll need the following ingredients for the marinade:
  • 1 Tbsp of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 Tbsp minced fresh garlic
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • fresh ground black pepper
Marinating and Baking the tofu:
  1. Put all the marinade ingredients in a bowl and mix well
  2. Press the block of tofu between an old dishtowel or paper towels to remove any excess water
  3. Slice the tofu in 1/2 inch slices, and lay side-by-side in a flat baking pan
  4. Spread the marinade over and under the tofu slices
  5. Cover and marinate 30 minutes or more in the fridge, turning once or twice if possible
  6. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
  7. Bake 30 minutes
  8. Turn over halfway through the baking
  9. Less baking time, if it looks very done halfway through
  10. Broil for a few minutes on each side to give the baked tofu a crusty finish
Had it with a side of brown rice and green beans. Delicious and healthy! :) I'm planning on making sandwiches with the left overs for lunch tomorrow. With some Dijon mustard, mushroom and spinach. Already can't wait to try it out!
