Siracha-Miso Baked Tofu

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.

Ingredients

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

Instructions

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!

    I love tofu but I never made a recipe like this. I have not heard of Sriracha sauce, but I would like to try it and I am sure I would enjoy this tofu recipe.
