This is adapted from a Moosewood recipe. I think that freezing, thawing, and pressing the liquid out of the tofu really improves the texture and makes it better able to absorb the sauce. I guess it's not strictly necessary to do it, though. :) Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. After pressing the excess moisture out of the tofu, chop it into cubes.
  2. Saute the onion, garlic and spices until the onions soften a bit.
  3. Add the pepper and saute until the peppers turn bright green (if using green peppers :)).
  4. Whisk together the sauce ingredients.
  5. Combine the sauteed vegetables and the sauce.
  6. Pour the sauce over the tofu cubes in a shallow baking pan.
  7. Bake, covered, at 350 F for 30 minutes.
  8. Uncover and bake for another 30 minutes, stirring frequently.
  9. This is good with rice.

Yummy! I halved the recipe and made this for lunch. Instead of the tomato paste, I used some homemade barbeque sauce. Loved it! Thank you Aunt Cookie!
