Baked Tofu.


I like to go to the Thai market and pick up a block of their fresh tofu and use the whole thing to make a batch of baked tofu. They are handy to keep in the fridge for snacking on cold, in sandwiches, heated up to eat with other side dishes etc. I make a marinade of olive oil, dijon, soy sauce, garlic powder, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar and black pepper to brush on both sides of the tofu before baking at 400 degrees F for about half an hour, making sure to flip the slices halfway. Always turns out great!


First things I used it for was this spinach salad with green beans and balsamic vinaigrette. Today I used it in a sandwich with toasted bread, Vegenaise, lettuce and tomato. And when I got home from work, I snacked on a slice right out of the fridge. They come out so nice and chewy with lots of flavor from the marinade.

Vegan Mouse, this looks SO amazing. Was going to do the "breast of tofu" by Bryanna CG, but now, might be headed to the asian market for some fresh tofu :-). You are on my blog roll!
