DIRECTIONS

  • Drain tofu and press for thirty minutes to remove excess water.
  • To prepare marinade, mix the soy sauce and water, then add ginger, garlic, and cumin. 1 tsp cayenne pepper can be added for a spicy kick. Put marinade into a medium-sized, flat plastic container for marinating.
  • Slice tofu into 6 equal-sized "cutlets" and lay flat, side-by-side, in marinade. The container should be small enough so that the marinade covers at least half of the tofu.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours, turning the tofu pieces over halfway through.
  • Cover a pan with tin foil and place marinated tofu on foil, brushing extra marinade over each piece.
  • Bake at 350 for 20 minutes, remove and flip tofu, then bake for an additional 20 minutes, or until the edges appear golden brown.
  • Serve warm or refrigerate and serve chilled later.
