Asian Baked Tofu
Serves 4

1 package firm tofu
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons grated or finely minced ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons mirin or other white wine
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons soy sauce.

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Cut the tofu into 10 even slices and use them to line a baking pan with edges. Mix together all the other ingredients, stirring well to dissolve the honey, and pour them over the tofu. Bake for 40-50 minutes, until the marinae is absorbed and the edges of the tofu pieces are brown. Serve hot or at room temperature. (You can also slice into strips and serve atop the noodle salad.)

    I made this for dinner last night and fed to a few a of my roommates who had never tried tofu before and they liked it! I made a few small changes to the recipe. I used just regular white wine and i also added about a table spoon of chili garlic sauce for a little spice.  I served the tofu with brown rice and greens. I’m very excited to add this recipe to my tofu repertoire.

    This is my absolute favorite tofu recipe ever! I make it for my family all the time and your book practically opens to the page. Id like to make it for a friend who has never tried tofu but is on a vegan with no fermented food or honey diet. Any thoughts on what I can replace the honey and wine with? The honey is really fundamental to the dish.

      So glad you love it! For the honey, any sweetener should be okay–preferably something full flavored, like a muscavado or cane sugar. As for wine, you could add in some vinegar, about half the amount. Let us know how it turns out!
