Baked marinated tofu?

I'm looking for a good recipe for baked marinated tofu. If you're familiar with Tofu Kan from Ithaca, NY, that's what I have in mind. Thanks!

  1. Never heard of the place you mentioned so I don't know waht theirs is like, but I make marinated baked tofu all the time. Mine is simply to marinate to tofu slices in whatever marinade I feel like using (usually whatever I can cobble together from my fridge and pantry so there's never a recipe) and then I bake it until the tofu has gotten slightly chewy. I love it that way.

    1. re: Miri1

      That's what I do too, starting with tofu slices that I've pressed to get rid of some of the water.

    2. There is a really great Chow video on roasting tofu - ever since I saw that video, its the only way I prepare tofu. After its done roasting, I toss it with dressing, bbq sauce, marinade (soy sauce, cilantro, sesame oil, ginger, garlic) - anything. Its delicious!

      1. if you EVER get the recipe for tofu kan let me know..i have been craving it ever since we left tompkins county!

        1. I too have never been to this restaurant, but do like to press firm tofu and let it sit in soy sauce and fresh lemon juice, then add liberal amounts of cracked black pepper and roast on high heat.

          Gluten-Free Girl has a good way to roast tofu here (and a recipe for a dipping sauce, instead of a marinade), but if you're not a fan of her prose you won't be able to scroll down quickly enough:

          1. tofu kan is not a restaurant. it is a yummy marinated tofu that is made in ithaca....

            this will help...
