Recipe Ingredients for Bex Lemon and Herb Tofu

250 g tofu, firm
1 tsp lemon peel
3 tbsp lemon juice
2 cloves garlic
3 g basil
3 g thyme
3 g parsley
1 pinch salt
1 pinch pepper

Recipe Directions for Bex Lemon and Herb Tofu

  1. This recipe is best prepared the night before.

  2. Remove the tofu from the packet and place on a flat plate, place a chopping board atop it and weight it down with some heavy books/tins.

  3. After at least 3 hours, you can remove the weigths and pour off all the excess water.

  4. Chop the tofu into bitesize cubes.

  5. Grate the lemon zest into a ziplock/resealable bag and add in the herbs and juice pepper. Grind the garlic with the salt in a pestle and mortar (or just chop the garlic finely if you dont have one) and add into the marinade bag.

  6. Add in the tofu and leave to marinate for as long as possible. Check occasionally to make sure there is still liquid, if there is none left in the bag you can add a little more lemon juice. The tofu will absorb as much flavour and liquid as possible to replace all the liquid you removed by pressing.

  7. This tofu can then be dry fried or grilled, whatever your taste!
