This is a great recipe for converting the non tofu consumers.
If your friends or family are hesitant to try tofu or have had a poor experience with it in the
past these cubes will turn them on to liking it… and even asking you for the recipe!
1 block firm or extra-firm tofu, chopped in ~1cm cubes
1 cup water
1/4 cup soy sauce, tamari or Bragg’s
1 tsp ground coriander seed
4 cloves fresh garlic, crushed
* adjust amount of each marinade ingredient according to taste; these amounts are approximations, I never measure! You need enough liquid to completely immerse the tofu.
Combine marinade ingredients and pour over tofu so that all cubes are immersed. Store overnight in
refrigerator, or at least 8 hours.
Place cubes on cookie sheet greased with coconut oil (an oil safe for high-heat cooking)
Bake at 400° for 30 minutes, or until desired consistency.
Serve on own as a snack or as a protein topping to any salad.

- add 1tsp cumin seeds when grinding the coriander; for best results toast in pan prior to grinding.
- optional: roll cubes in nutritional yeast prior to baking
- sometimes I will add 1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil or 1tsp liquid smoke to the marinade, for variety
