This definitely has potential, but as is, there was too much thyme for me, and it overpowered the other spices. My tofu also cooked more quickly than called for, but that could just be my pan. I will try to make this again though, with some adjustments to the spices.

  8. *To press tofu, wrap in paper towels or a clean dish towel and press under the weight of a heavy object, such as a skillet with a heavy book in it. Turn over after 1/2 hour. This will get the water out and allow the tofu to soak up more of the marinade.
