Vegetarian Monday – Baked Tofu


For the first official Meatless Monday dinner I chose the Baked Tofu recipe that TJ posted on her blog, TJ’s Test Kitchen.

I was leery at first, I’ve had tofu before but I don’t remember liking it.

I followed her directions to press the tofu between layers of paper towels and marinate it in a soy and ginger mix before baking it in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. (Excuse the post-yoga hair and clothes)

I paired it with some lightly baked kale that I baked alongside the tofu for about 6 minutes.

My friend Kelly joined me for dinner and we were both really surprised by how tasty this dish was! I totally forgot I was eating tofu. The marinade made the tofu so flavorful I didn’t miss the meat. The Baked Tofu was a little time consuming, but if I would have thought to press the tofu before I started yoga I could have multi-tasked and saved some time.

So the verdict is: Baked Tofu=delicious! Go try it! :)

You did a great job! I love the HEAVY stuff you placed on top of the tofu for pressing out the moisture! HAHA! :) I agree it is a little time consuming but I think its worth it! :) Glad you liked it!
