Marinated Italian Tofu

This is fromVeganomicon by Moskowitz and Romero.  My kids loved it as is; I thought it was a bit dry on its own but terrific when I merged it with my salad.  Serves 4.


  • 1 pound extra firm tofu

Meanwhile, make the marinade:

  • 1/2 c white cooking wine
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 T balsamic vinegar
  • 2 T soy sauce
  • 2 T fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • a big pinch each of dried basil, marjoram, and thyme

Cut the tofu into 8 slices and marinate 1 hour.  Preheat oven to 400.  Place the tofu on a baking sheet and bake 20 min, flip, then bake another 10 min.  Run the broiler for the last two minutes to increase chewiness.
