best baked tofu

21 Sep

i got this recipe from my friend Eric in college.  Where he got it from, I’m not sure– but it is so delicious, easy and versatile.  Tastes great with roasted vegetables, on its own or on a salad.  For lunch tomorrow, I decided to put it over spinach sauteed w. garlic and oil and cous cous.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
1 package tofu (i like the vacuum packed kind, but the firm in water works too)
6 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1-1/2 tablespoons fresh grated ginger (i cheat and use the minced jarred kind)

Slice tofu and lay in an 8×8 pan.  Mix all ingredients in a small bowl.  Pour over tofu.  Bake for 30 mins.
