Baked tofu- vegan

Shown here with brown rice pulao and roasted vegetables




Just got back from work and need to cook something simple, healthy and delicious for your family with minimal effort? -If so, then this recipe could be just what you were looking for! This makes enough for 3-4 people.
1 block (about 400g) firm tofu, drained
1 dsp date syrup
the juice of 1/2  a lemon
a pinch of black pepper
2 tabs dark soy sauce 
1 tsp smoked paprika ("sweet" rather than "hot")
a pinch of hing
1/2 tsp powdered ginger
  • First mix all ingredients except the tofu together in an ovenproof dish. This is your marinade/ sauce.
  • Cube the tofu and leave to marinate, turning after a few minutes, while you get the rest of your meal ready; my suggestion is brown rice and roasted veggies, as they get on with cooking themselves once you have prepared them, but for a lighter meal you could go for just salad.
  • Bake at 200C until most of the marinade has been absorbed/ evaporated
  • I served this with roasted peppers and fennel over a Mediterranean-style"pulao" of brown basmati rice,  pinenuts, cashews, sunflower seeds and peas with some dried basil thrown in for good measure. Easy!
