I’ve had a package of tofu sitting in the back of my fridge for a while and tonight I decided that I better make something with it. I found this super simple recipe for baked tofu in my Happy Herbivore cookbook (you can find Lindsay’s, the writer behind Happy Herbivore, recipes online there) and thought now is just a good time as any.
It recommended marinating in personal choice of marinade so I chose Trader Joe’s Island Soyaki and a wise choice it was.
If you are uneasy about cooking tofu then try this recipe for a qui
ck delicious meal that will help you get comfortable with preparing and eating tofu!
1 lb. extra firm tofu
Couple Tbsp. of marinade of choice
Preheat oven to 350. Line baking shed with parchment paper and set aside.
Cut tofu into 8-10 strips (I had 12 and this worked too).
Brush both sides of the tofu with marinade and put on baking sheet.
Bake for 8 minutes. Flip and bake for another 8 minutes, or until the tofu is golden brown and slightly crisp on the outside but tender on the inside.
Plate with some delicious veggies (I did broccoli) and maybe a whole grain if you have on hand and its an easy and tasty dinner!
