Lemon Basil Tofu
Per 3 slices or 4 oz. of tofu
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
3⁄4 teaspoon sugar
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped basil, plus extra for garnish
2 blocks extra-firm tofu, well pressed
Whisk together all ingredients, except tofu, and transfer to a baking dish or casserole pan.
Slice the tofu into 1⁄2-inch-thick strips or triangles. Place the tofu in the marinade and coat well. Allow to marinate for at least 1 hour or overnight, being sure tofu is well coated in marinade.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake for 15 minutes, turn over, then bake for another 10–12 minutes or until done. Garnish with a few extra bits of chopped fresh basil.
