Balsamic Marinated Tofu
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 16 ounces extra firm tofu
  • ½ c balsamic vinegar
  • 2 t maple syrup
  • 2 T tamari (or Bragg’s liquid aminos)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 t dried thyme
  • 1 t dried oregano
  • 2 T olive oil
  1. Press and drain tofu to remove excess moisture. Slice into ⅓-inch slabs.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, tamari, garlic, thyme and oregano. Mix well. Add olive oil in a thin stream and keep stirring until combined.
  3. Place tofu in a single layer in a shallow baking dish. Pour balsamic marinade over the tofu and flip tofu pieces to coat. Let tofu marinate 1-2 hours, flipping pieces occasionally. (Most of the liquid will be absorbed by the tofu in this process, but it's fine if some remains).
  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Transfer tofu and any remaining marinade to the oven and bake 45-60 minutes until brown, flipping once halfway through.
