Soy Lime Roasted Tofu

EatingWell Magazine Mar/Apr 2009

  • 1 14-ounce package extra-firm, water-packed tofu, drained
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

Pat tofu dry and cut into 1/2- to 3/4-inch cubes.
 Combine soy sauce, lime juice and oil in a medium
 shallow dish or large sealable plastic bag. 
Add the tofu; gently toss to combine. 
Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour 
or up to 4 hours, gently stirring once or twice.

Preheat oven to 450°F.
Remove the tofu from the marinade 
with a slotted spoon (discard marinade). 
Spread out on a large baking sheet, 
making sure the pieces are not touching.

 Roast, gently turning halfway through,
 until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

  1. Mister Linky is up for this week's Crock Pot Wednesday. I figured with the busy week and weekend, that we should get an early start. I hope you will come on over and join me. There's a giveaway going on.

  2. The last time I tried tofu, I wasn't fond of the texture. Maybe I need to give it another try...

  3. My son has been asking me to cook tofu and I wasn't really sure where to start - so thank you for the very timely inspiration!!

  4. My 22 year old loves tofu, but other than sauteing it up, I didn't know what to do with it. I showed her the recipe and we are going to make it tomorrow. Thanks.

  5. Sounds tasty! I never tried marinating tofu before, thanks for sharing the recipe.

  6. I love tofu- although i have never cooked it before -just order it out- would think this would be great in stir fry or a salad-what do you use it in or do you eat it as is???

  7. How did you know that I adore tofu? This looks like an absolutely killer recipe!! I've never tried citrus with tofu - it's on my list of to-do's now!
