Baked Tofu with Mustard-Honey Glaze

This was an easy and delicious meal to put together. I didn’t have peanut oil, so I substituted sesame oil. Also, instead of brushing the marinade on, I just poured it over the tofu, and stirred, and then stirred the whole thing halfway through the baking time. It’s a really sweet dish, so maybe something a little acidic would help. I think it would also be great with some chopped cashews or something to add some more texture to the dish.

Baked Tofu with Mustard-Honey Glaze
Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone – Deborah Madison

1-pound firm tofu
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon of molasses
1 tablespoon of peanut oil
1 teaspoon soy sauce
3 ½ tablespoons mustard
2 teaspoons curry powder
salt and pepper

Cut tofu into cubes and set on paper towels to drain while you mix the remaining ingredients for the marinade in a bowl. Place the tofu in a pie plate or baking dish and brush the marinade over it. Let stand for 20 minutes or as long as overnight.

Preheat over to 400 degrees. Bake until sizzling and hot, about 20 mins, basting midway through cooking. Serve with any extra marinade on side.
