Simple Garlic Ginger Tofu

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 14-oz block firm, extra firm (or sprouted) organic tofu, cubed ~ pressed
  • drizzle of toasted sesame oil (I use about 1 tsp)
  • 1/3 cup organic tamari or balsamic vinegar or soy sauce
  • 1 large garlic clove, microplaned
  • 1/2 inch piece of ginger, peeled and microplaned
  • sprinkle of sesame seeds (optional)
  • 1 scallion, sliced (optional)

 

METHOD

  1. First, make the marinade. Combine the tamari/soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and sesame oil in an oven-proof dish.
  2. Taste for seasoning and adjust if necessary (sometimes I add more garlic and ginger)
  3. Cube the block of tofu and add it in. Gently stir it to coat the tofu with the marinade.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. Keep an eye on it (if your dish is too large and the marinade can spread out, it can burn quickly).
  5. When it’s done, sprinkle with sesame seeds and scallions. Enjoy!
