This was absolutely delicious! It will make a tofu lover out of you yet (I hope!). I let my tofu sit overnight in the marinade, and then baked it, and I thought it turned out great. As I describe below, be sure to really "press" the excess liquid out of your tofu to ensure that it absorbs the marinade. Don't be afraid to put something really heavy on it to draw out the moisture.

I really enjoyed this! It was inspired by a recipe I saw on Food 911. Careful with the cayenne. (I personally like it a little spicy, but use your own judgment) I also usually only make half of this recipe. (I'm the only one in the house who will actually EAT tofu!)
Thanks to Dr. Weil for this recipe. For a quick and exciting meal, this healthful version of a popular Mexican dish is hard to beat. The baked tofu neatly replaces beef and, along with olive oil, provides good fat. Nonfat whole-wheat tortillas make very good fajitas. They have none of the hydrogenated fat of conventional white-flour tortillas and give you some fiber.
Chimichurri is a potent, hot and garlicky South American sauce that is usually served with grilled meats. Try it here with grilled tofu for a fiesty vegetarian dish that is sure to please. Make extra sauce and store it in the fridge for up to a month in an airtight container. It is great marinade for chicken, pairs nicely with any grilled meat and works well as a topping for baked fish.
This is a delicious colourful chili with a perfect blend of many vegetables with tofu in a thick spicy tomato base. This original recipe came from Runner's World magazine, although I have altered it to suit my likings. Frying tofu gives it a more meat like texture. For those who like chili very spicy, more chili powder may be added.
This recipe came from: http://www.care2.com/channels/solutions/food/1056 It is absolutely divine. It even has non-tofu people singing its praises. It is a great "starter vegetarian" type recipe. I like to serve it with some plain rice.
I fooled a lot of people; they still think the pie couldn't have tofu in it! I make it with a lot of spices. Be flexible; use more or less as need be. I also skip the crust and put it into a Pam-sprayed dish.
I was quite surprised how wonderful these turned out! Obviously, I would never try to fool anyone that these were actual MEAT, but I think this is a wonderful meatless substitution to the old Italian favorite. These "meat" balls are great served over spaghetti in your favorite tomato sauce. And taste even better leftover the next day.
