I actually just did this for the 1st time this weekend. I actually marinated w/ soy sauce, molasses, garlic & parsley & then I baked it. It was yummy.

Spicy Thai Peanut sauce/schezuan sauce/red chili garlic sauce + tamari/a diluted red/green curry paste (perhaps diluted with soy or coconut milk?)



Um...you could do OJ, chili powder, garlic powder, fresh jalepenos, green onion, a little salt, and...



Well, that's all I have



Cheers!

For those of you baking your tofu,how long do you bake it for and at what temperature?



I want to start making my own because the white wave marinated tofu is kind of expensive,it's about $4 a pack here.

350 and until it is done, maybe 40 minutes.



For spicy I would probably do.



I don't have an oven, but I once wanted to use the following marinated for baked tofu.



Tablespoon each sherry, chili garlic paste and soy sauce. Teaspoon each sugar, chopped garlic, chopped ginger, and red pepper flakes. Two tablespoons of peanut or cashew butter. Combine everything in blender until smooth, marinate several hours or overnight, bake.



This is by no means tried and true.

Depending on how much liquid, until it soaks it all up around 20-30 min.

Marinating with OJ actually tastes good? Hmm... maybe I'll try that since I have OJ in the fridge.



Thanks for the suggestions everyone!

I do not believe conditions exist under which OJ is not good.

My store/cafe makes buffalo tofu by deep frying the tofu for a few minutes and then stirring it around in a mix of Earth Balance and Frank's Original Red Hot. I LOVE it.

I would recommend reducing it first, along with the spices...boil the oj/spices to about 1/2 so they have time to 'meld' together...then you could cool the mixture (entirely optional I'd imagined) and go from there with your soy slabs







Cheers!



ETA: I have a Caribbean-Jerk tofu recipe in the recipe section if you need some help with measurements/spices...I also add ginger/raisins to my mix.

Everytime I marinate tofu it comes out spongy/soggy. Is it better to marinate tofu that hasnt been frozen I was thinking maybe that was the prob.
