Note the exclamation point! This recipe is insanely delicious. I have the house to myself this weekend and I though I’d start it off right by cooking myself a nice dinner. Curried tofu, some veggies, and a blondie for dessert! It was magical. I really felt treated.
- 1 package firm tofu, drained and rinsed
- ⅓ cup soy sauce
- juice of 1 orange
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 1½ teaspoons curry powder
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon garam masala
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon powdered ginger
- ½ bunch cilantro, finely chopped
- drizzle of olive oil
Drain tofu. Wrap in layers of paper towel and press between two plates, the top one with a heavy pan or bowl of water on top, and leave it for 30 minutes. Cut into small cubes.
Combine all of the other ingredients in a small bowl (except the olive oil) and whisk together, and then place the tofu cubes in a dish that just fits them in one layer, then pour the marinade evenly over the cubes. Drizzle a little olive oil over them. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours.
Preheat the oven to 375 F and bake the tofu, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Remove your tofu from the oven and serve immediately, over rice or with veggies.
It was SO ridiculously good. I highly recommend! It was perfect for treating myself to dinner.
