Baked Marinated Tofu
1 lb. tofu, firm or extra firm
Marinade: 2/3 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup oil
2 scallions, sliced (optl)
2 teaspoon dill seed
5 tablespoon lemon juice
1)Press tofu to drain off liquid (at least 20 min., but up to 1 hr). Then slice the block into 1/3-1/2 thick slices.
2)Combine all marinade ingredients with a wire whisk.
3)Place tofu slices side-by-side in a glass baking dish and pour marinade over them. Marinade for at least 30 min. at room temp. (or up to 8 hours in the refrigerator).
4)Remove tofu from the marinade and place on an oiled bake sheet. Bake at 425deg. til well-browned, slightly crusty but still creamy within. Turn the slices once during the baking and, if desired, baste with a little more marinade. Baking will take 30-40 min. total.
5)Reserve remaining marinade for future use. Use a glass jar and keep refrigerated.
