Roasted Tofu: Chef Secrets!

:et’s face it – tofu is bland. But is that really a BAD thing?? Not really… In fact, in our minds, the naturally bland-flavor is a BONUS. You can seamlessly add tofu to any dish without worrying about contrasting flavors. Whether you’re preparing a sweet morning breakfast or a savoury meal – tofu can always be a quick-and-easy protein to add.  In this recipe, Chef Kenzie uses her three-step tofu marinade technique to make an incredibly tasty bite…

Step One: “Sandwich” the tofu between 2 sheets of paper towel. Place something heavy (a cookbook or a pan) on top of the paper-towel wrapped tofu. Let it sit for 15 minutes, to drain excess water from the tofu.

Step Two: Poke a few holes in the tofu using a wooden skewer or a fork.

Step Three: Place the tofu in a zipper-locked bag with a marinade (or a mix of 1 part acid, 3 parts oil, and salt). Let marinade in the fridge for 1 hour or overnight.

After letting the tofu sit in the marinade, it will be ready-to-go! The tofu will soak up the marinade, and take-on whatever flavors you added – YUM! What marinade would you use? (Comment below!)
