Baked Indonesian Tofu–OMG!

Friends, you HAVE to make this recipe, courtesy of Meatless Monday. It is a gift from the tofu Goddess!

It’s so simple to make…Matt was the chef of this dish last night and he did an excellent job. The sauce was SO good I felt like I was eating in a restaurant–but this was WAY better.

If you’re afraid of tofu, don’t be. It’s so easy to prepare and takes the flavor of whatever you cook it with.

Let me know how you like it!

Baked Indonesian Tofu

Serves 4

  • 1 12 ounce block firm tofu, drained and cubed
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons peanut or cashew butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger root, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons green onions, thinly sliced

Spear the cubed tofu on skewers. Brush the tofu with 2 tablespoons of the soy sauce and refrigerate for at least an hour.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the 1 remaining tablespoon soy sauce with the peanut or cashew butter, honey, maple syrup, lemon juice, ginger, garlic, chili powder and sesame oil. Stir the chopped green onions into the blended sauce.

Bake the skewered tofu at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, turn over, and bake for 10 minutes more.

Brush the baked tofu with the peanut honey sauce and enjoy.

    So this tastes better the second day.

    Seriously, this was super easy. The trick is marinating the tofu in soy sauce for a FEW hours. The recipe says one, but the longer the better as it becomes moist and juicy.

    Love this one. And if Matt can do it then anyone can do it.
