Easy Lemon Pepper Tofu
1 lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon low-sodium tamari
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 package (14 ounce) firm or extra firm tofu plus, drained, pressed, and sliced 1/2" thick
(I use Nasoya)
1. Mix all ingredients except the tofu in a container. Seal the container, shake until well blended, and set aside.
2. Place tofu in a single layer on a baking pan. Pour the marinade over the tofu, then lift the pieces of tofu to get the marinade on the bottom sides.
3. Cover the baking pan and marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes (I usually marinate for 1 hour or more, but 30 minutes will work just fine too).
4. Turn the tofu at least once while marinating. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 30 minutes.
Source of recipe: I wanted to try a new marinade for tofu and I loved lemon pepper stuff when I used to eat meat, so I decided to try it with the tofu.
