I love it when I find a great tofu marinade – tofu does such a great job of soaking up flavors, the marinade is really important. This is a sweet-spicy combo that will have you munching on bites of tofu straight out of the pan! I eyeballed just about everything – it’s very forgiving!
I also let the tofu soak overnight to maximize the flavor.
1 14-16 ounce container extra-firm tofu
Miso Sriracha Marinade:
2 Tbs of white miso paste
2 Tbs of soy sauce
2-3 Tbs of Sriracha sauce (or more if you really like it spicy)
2 Tbs of honey (or other sweetener – agave to make it vegan)
1 Tbs of toasted sesame oil
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp of fresh ginger, grated
Cut tofu into 1 inch cubes and blot it with a paper towel to remove extra moisture.
To make marinade: In a bowl place all the ingredients and blend it well.
Marinate the tofu for at least 15-30 minutes or even overnight (in a refrigerator). I just dumped the tofu in the pan I planned to bake it in and threw the marinade on top. Put on a lid and stuck it in the fridge until time to bake the next day.
Bake the tofu at 375 for about 45 minutes, until the edges are starting to brown.
I served mine with noodles and leftover grilled veggies. It would also be great as a salad topper!
