Baked tofu

  • One box of firm tofu
  • Marinade (below)
  1. Drain tofu by setting colander on top of a bowl to collect water. Put whole block of tofu in colander, then adding a flat heavy item on top. We use a rectangle glass bowl and add 2 canned soups on top. Drain in fridge for 1 hour to all day.
  2. Cut tofu into appropriate pieces (either slabs or cubes).
  3. Marinade in glass bowl for 30 minutes, flip tofu, marinade 30 more minutes. You can marinade overnight as well.
  4. Bake at 350-400*F for 40 minutes on a wire rack. If not using a wire rack, bake on parchment paper or foil or silicon mat, turning every 10-15 minutes.
  5. Cool completely if using in salad.
