Marinated tofu recipe - you have to try this!

Ok, I know, you think tofu is yuck. Apart from being good vegetarian food, adding protein and variety to the diet, this particular recipe tastes great. I'm talking restaurant quality, you'll want more, food.

1 packet firm tofu
tamari (low-sodium soy sauce)
sesame oil
cajun spice mix

Use a sharp knife to cut the block of tofu into thin (1cm) slices. Cut each slice into triangles which look fancy when served. Place in a baking dish large enough for the slices to sit in one layer.

Mix the marinade using equal parts of tamari and sesame oil, the amount will depend on how much tofu you are preparing. Add the spices and mix well.  Pour over tofu, being sure to cover it all.

Let marinate overnight, or for a few hours in the fridge, turning at least once to ensure tofu is covered evenly.

Take slices out of the marinade and place on a baking sheet covered with non-stick baking paper. Bake in a hot oven for about 10-15 minutes.

Serve with a salad of baby spinach, roast vegetables, artichoke hearts and feta.

Well, did you like it?


  1. I would love to try this! Tofu soaks up the sauces its in so well, i can just imagine how good this would taste.

  2. Hi Trishie
    hope you like it. Another suggstions (I haven't tried it yet) is adding orange juice and ginger to the tamari and oil. Sounds promising!
