Recipe For Baked Tofu

Healthy Recipe: Cumin and Honey Baked Tofu

If you're a vegetarian or looking to add more protein to your diet without added cholesterol or saturated fat, tofu is a great option. It's pretty unappetizing on its own though, so here's a simple recipe for sweet and salty baked tofu. It makes a flavorful topping on salad, pizza, and sandwiches, or is delicious on its own.

Cumin and Honey Baked Tofu

Ingredients

1 15-ounce block of extra firm tofu
2 tablespoons reduced sodium tamari (soy sauce)
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon dill
1 teaspoon cumin

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  2. Gently squeeze the block of tofu between your hands to remove excess liquid. Dice it into cubes.
  3. Spray Pam onto the bottom of a small pan. Add the tofu.
  4. Pour the tamari onto the tofu cubes. Stir with a spoon to evenly coat. Drizzle on the honey, and then sprinkle on the thyme, dill, and cumin.

  5. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until desired firmness. Enjoy right away or store in an airtight container in the fridge.

I'm always looking for new tofu marinades :) This sounds like it will make a delicious sandwich.

I don't think I'll ever love tofu. I've been a veg for 5 1/2 years and I just can't develop a taste for it. I've only had it 1-2 times where I liked it (in Chinese soup and in stir fry). The key to tofu is to make sure ALL of the water is pressed out. I mean ALL. If you do this, the marinade will be absorbed enough to grab the flavor :)
