Baked Ginger Orange Tofu
My family loves tofu this way - especially the kids.
1 pound firm tofu
1/4 cup orange marmalade
1/4cup boiling water
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon orange or lemon juice, or brown rice vinegar
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger or 1/2 teaspoon ground, dried ginger
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place tofu in shallow dish.
Place weighted cutting board over tofu to press out water while you prepare the sauce.
Mix marmalade with boiling water until smooth.
Add soy sauce, juice or vinegar, and ginger. Stir well.
Place tofu on side and cut in half lengthwise though complete block.
Turn tofu back flat and cut in half lengthwise. Then cut four even slices across width.
You should have 16 pieces of tofu. Arrange slices in 8 or 9-inch baking dish.
Pour sauce over top of tofu, making sure to cover each piece with sauce.
Turn to coat if necessary.
Sprinkle sesame seeds over top.
Bake 30 minutes.
Serve over rice or noodles.
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
