Baked Italian Tofu
2 pounds extra-firm tofu
1 bottle vegan Italian dressing
1 cup very dry red wine
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1 palmful kosher salt
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon flour
My picky kids request this for a special birthday meal!
Drain and cube tofu. Marinade in dressing and wine for at least 2 hrs, but preferably overnight.
Preheat oven to 350. Pour 1/2 cup olive oil in a shallow baking dish.
Pour off and reserve marinade. Coat tofu cubes in kosher salt and place in olive oil. Bake for 45 minutes.
In a saucepan heat 1 tablespoon olive oil, add flour. Whisk in remaining marinade and red pepper flakes. Cook until thickened.
Serve tofu over rice and mixed veggies. Top with sauce, and watch your kids GOBBLE IT UP!
