Recipe Directions for Baked Lemon Herb Tofu

  1. Baked Lemon Herb Tofu ~ from "Vive le Vegan"

  2. *1 package of extra firm tofu sliced into twelve 1/4" slices & patted with paper towel to remove excess water. Set tofu aside for a minute while you make the marinade.

  3. *In a 11 x 8 baking pan combine the juice of two lemons (fresh juice is best!), 2 tbsp of olive oil, 2 tbsp of tamari soy sauce, 1 tsp of oregano, basil and thyme and 1 tsp of agave nectar (or brown rice syrup, or maple syrup).

  4. *Mix the marinade very well in the pan and arrange the tofu in two rows of six slices each. Make sure the marinade gets on both sides of the tofu!

  5. *Bake the tofu, covered with tin foil, for 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Turn the tofu and bake uncovered for an another 15 minutes. Flip tofu one more time and bake for a final 5 minutes uncovered.

  6. *If there is any marinade left over (usually it all soaks into the tofu) you can dress your tofu with it when it is plated.

  7. ****This is FANTASTIC as a sandwich filling, mashed with a bit of vagenaise (or regular mayo) and diced sweet red pepper. It's great for summer picnics, just wait 'til you try it! :o) ****
