Savory Marinated Tofu

Diet Type: Vegan

Cooking Time: Over one hour

Ingredients:

  1 pound firm tofu, cut into 1/2" slabs
  1 cup water
  1 teaspoon dried basil
  1 teaspoon dried oregano
  3 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
  1 medium onion, sliced into thin 1/2 moons
  2 tablespoons Tamari
  1-2 teaspoons canola, olive, or toasted Sesame Oil

Place the slabs of tofu on a clean kitchen towel and wrap ends over top. Press gently to extract extra liquid from the tofu. Place in a glass dish and set aside. Blend remaining ingredients in a blender. Place in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Pour liquid over tofu and marinate at least six hours or overnight. To cook, lightly coat a skillet with olive, canola or toasted Sesame Oil. Heat over medium heat. Add tofu slices and fry about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
