Tofu Marinade

Baked or smoked tofu is a healthy alternative to cheese and an excellent source of protein. Delicious flavors are available pre-packaged in natural food stores or can be made easily at home. Here’s one of my favorite quick and easy marinades.

What You Need:

  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/4-inch piece of ginger, grated
  • 1 block firm tofu

What You Do:

  1. Combine the juice, soy sauce, garlic and ginger in a bowl.
  2. Cut the firm tofu into thin "sheets" and place in the bowl with the marinade. Let sit for at least 30 minutes, spooning some of the liquid over the tofu a few times.
  3. You can use the marinated tofu as is, or bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Any leftover marinade makes a great salad dressing.
