Oven Glazed Tofu





I found that baking tofu for a prolonged period of time will result in a chewier texture than pan frying. You want to start with a drained and pressed tofu (up to 2 hours). Then prepare your marinade and let the tofu soak it up for at least 1 hour.  Then bake in a 400 degree oven uncovered for 45-50 minutes, turning and basting every 15 minutes.

Basic Marinade:

1 T olive oil
1 t sesame oil
1 lg clove garlic
3/4 ” slice of agave (goya brand agave paste in rect box)
1 t BTB + 3 T water
1 T chard wine
1 cube cryst ginger
2 T soy sauce
1 T chardonnay wine
1 t brown sugar (because agave is sweetened, otherwise use 1 TB)
minced jalapeno – or serrano 1/4 t (optional)

alternate marinades:

Orange Chipotle

switch the jalapeno for chipotle

switch the agave for orange rind but will not be sweet so add 3 TB b sugar or use orange juice

rest stays the same.

Pineapple Lime

switch out the agave for pineapple

switch out the lemon juice for lime but increase to 1 TB

rest stays the same
