My favorite tofu marinade is balsamic vinegar and soy sauce mixed together. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"> I usually start it in the morning and let it go all day. when I get home from work, I stir fry the tofu and mix it with some vegetables. One of my favorite meals.

Braggs, from what I understand, can be used just like a soy sauce. I haven't seen it in my stores so therefore, I have bought any but I have tried some once and it tastes a lot like soy sauce to me (plus, I've heard other people talk about using it like a soy sauce...).<br><br><br><br>
A marinade that I use is a bit of olive oil with some tumeric, ceyanne, Mexican oregano, cumin, lemon pepper, garlic and sometimes ginger. Stir that into the oil and place the tofu in it to let it soak up. I usually pan "fry" it in a small amount of oil and add veggies, rice, or whatever into it.<br><br><br><br>
I like kraftykraft's idea of marinading it in the morning and letting it soak up that yumminess all day... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:">

tofu is excellent fried or baked. The marinade really depends on what type of food you are making. if it is asian, it is best to incluide soy sauce in the marninade. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I made a great marinade the other day, using tamari, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and some water. the longer it sits the better it gets.<br><br><br><br>
i was quite surperised how flavourful it was.<br><br>
I will get my cookbook out later and post the actual recipe.

i love to marinate tofu in green curry paste (from a bottle), dilute it with 2 parts rice wine, 1 part soy sauce, 1 part hoisin sauce and about 1 tsp of sesame oil. cube tofu for stirfrys and slice it about 1/4" slabs for baking. great stuff!

I slice firm tofu then marinate it for a day or so in barbecue sauce. (I make my own barbecue sauce from a joy of cooking recipe that I've liberally altered and spiked with a bunch of cumin, but you should use whatever you have.) Then, I saute it in garlic spread (finely chopped garlic mixed with olive oil and refrigerated to make it spreadable) and season it with salt and pepper. Cooking it fills the house with the best smell...

I rather like teriyaki marinated tofu. You have to be careful to avoid oyster sauce in teriyaki though... it's in a lot of them.

I marinade with a mix of natural peanut butter, soy sauce, canola oil, and apple cider vinegar, I let soak for a night then I bake it until the house gets all good smellin, then i eat it plain, in a stir fry or on a sandwhich.<br><br><br><br>
A friend of mine told me she marinates in French dressing, I havnt tried it yet but she digs it.<br><br><br><br>
Barbeque sauce is also great when you mix it in a crockpot with a pound of sliced tofu and slow cook.<br><br><br><br>
Hope this helps
