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 4 hours to 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!

You can refrigerate this for days.  It makes a great hot or cold sandwich, is good sliced on salads, and particularly great for breakfast with cantaloupe.
