TERIYAKI MARINADE (makes about 1 cup)

Pure Maple Syrup 1/4 cup
Shoyu or Soy Sauce 1/4 cup
Molasses 2 Tablespoons
Toasted Sesame Oil 2 Tablespoons
Onion Powder 1 Teaspoon
Powdered Ginger 1 Teaspoon
Garlic Powder 1/2 Teaspoon
Cayenne Pepper 1/4 Teaspoon


Use "Fresh" Tofu

Press out the Moisture

Slice one pound into 10 pieces.  Don't use boxed tofu. Lay the pieces on a clean kitchen towel.
Fold the towel over the tofu. Fold again to complete the wrap.

Add Some Weight

Mix up the Marinade

Press for 2 hours. See the amounts above.   We make a quadruple-sized batch of marinade to have on hand.  Shake the marinade before using because it settles.

Marinate the Tofu

Bake on an Oiled Pan

Place the tofu in a leak proof container and marinate overnight using one cup of marinade.  Flip the container over once halfway through to insure complete coverage.  A square container would be even better than the one pictured here. Bake at 300F for 45 minutes on a 9 x 13 pan greased with a tablespoon of soy oil.  Turn them over after 30 minutes and again after removing pan from the oven.

All Done!

Yum Yum!

You can refrigerate this for days.  It makes a great hot or cold sandwich and is nice sliced on salads, too.
