Brown Sugar Glazed Tofu


Tofu Marinade
1 block of extra firm tofu, pressed and drained
3 tbsp soy sauce
Juice of half a lemon
1 tsp garlic chili sauce
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp thyme
1 tbsp maple syrup
3 cloves minced garlic
1/4 small onion, minced
2 tsp smoked paprika
2 tbsp nutritional yeast

30-35 whole cloves (the spice)

Brown Sugar Glaze
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp spicy brown mustard

Press and drain your tofu really well before beginning. Place tofu on a clean working surface and taking either a toothpick or needle, poke holes all over the surface of your tofu. Cut a shallow crosshatch pattern into one side of your tofu. Mix marinade ingredients in a bowl, place tofu into a resealable bag and pour marinade overtop the tofu. Seal bag, gently shake to coat and place in fridge to marinade over night. Preheat oven to 375F. Remove tofu from marinade bag and place crosshatch side up on a lined baking sheet. Place whole cloves into each crosshatch intersection and then place tofu into the oven for 20 minutes. As you remove tofu from the oven, prepare glaze by combining brown sugar and mustard together in a bowl. Place in the microwave to warm up for 15 seconds then stir to make a sauce. Carefully baste tofu with the glaze until it is covered and place back in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush remaining glaze overtop. Place tofu back into the oven and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes or until tofu edges appear to crisp. Remove from oven and allow to rest. Remove cloves and with a sharp knife, cut tofu into thin pieces and enjoy with meal.
