I absolutely love baked tofu on everything from salads to sammies! I am usually lazy & opt for the pre-packed stuff from Trader Joe’s, but tonight I wanted to try my hand at making it myself! After browsing a few different recipes, here is what I came up with my own version.
- 1 pkg firm tofu
- ⅓ cup soy sauce
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp paprika
- ½ tsp ground cumin
- juice of ½ an orange
- Press & drain tofu for 20 minutes, then cut (the long way) into 3-4 slices. In a shallow dish, mix together the soy sauce, garlic, paprika, cumin & orange juice. Place tofu in marinade & let marinate for 20 minutes in the fridge, flipping it over a few times. Place tofu on a greased baking sheet, put in the oven for 45 minutes at 375 degrees.
I am still working through the box o’greens from last week’s CSA share & decided to make “Sauteed Swiss Chard with Sliced Garlic.” I reheated last night’s leftover couscous, then topped it with the sauteed chard, a slice of baked tofu & a sprinkle of rainbow micro greens. Good stuff & a pretty dish, too!
