Tamari and Ginger Baked Tofu

Tamari and Ginger Baked Tofu

Makes 4 Servings

1 16-ounce block firm tofu

1 clove garlic, minced

1 inch piece of ginger, grated

2 tablespoons water

¼ cup tamari

1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey

Pinch red pepper flakes

Gomasio, for garnishing

1. Drain tofu, wrap in paper towels, and press under a weight (like a heavy skillet) for 20 minutes to remove excess water. Slice tofu into desired shapes.

2. Whisk together the garlic, ginger, water, tamari, rice wine vinegar, toasted sesame oil, sweetener, and red pepper flakes. Marinade the tofu in this mixture for 1-2 hours.

3. Preheat oven to 350F.

4. Place tofu and any remaining marinade on a parchment-lined baking dish. Bake in oven for about 45 minutes, turning the tofu a few times so that all sides can become firm and brown.
