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.

This Week’s Nibbles

Happy Friday!

I’m inaugurating a new weekly Friday post–articles, blog posts, and stories I’ve come across on the web that I feel are worth sharing. Read them all now or savor them to read throughout the weekend. But I’ve done all the work for you and found this week’s best reads (in my humble opinion).  Just a disclaimer about this week’s picks: a few involve food safety, such as chicken and salmon farming. I’ll let you know which ones they are in case ignorant bliss is for you (I promise not to hold it against you)  Enjoy–and have a fabulous weekend!
