I made this simple tofu dish for dinner again tonight, and it was great! Just like last time, I broiled it for quite a bit longer than suggested, and there weren’t too many crispy edges, but it tasted good. The sauce would be great reduced and poured over some crispy pan-fried tofu as well. The convenience of how quickly it comes together makes it worth broiling, since I can have something else going on the stovetop while it’s in the oven. I threw some mini bell peppers on the tray with the tofu when it went into the oven again this time, and served it alongside Green Beans with Garlicky Shiitakes.
Savory Broiled Tofu
It’s All Good – Gwyneth Paltrow
1/4 cup soy sauce*
2 tablespoons raw honey
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
2 small garlic cloves, finely minced
A 14-ounce box firm tofu, drained and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
Set your oven rack up close to your broiler and preheat the broiler to high.
Whisk together the soy sauce, honey, oils, and garlic in a mixing bowl. Add the tofu to the bowl and gently stir to coat it with the mixture. Transfer the tofu to a baking sheet and pour over it whatever liquid remains in the bowl. Broil, stirring now and then, until the tofu is browned and has a few crispy edges, just 4 to 5 minutes total, depending on the heat of your broiler.
