Balsamic-Mustard Marinated TofuSubmitted by: KASHER47
IntroductionTofu marinated and baked in a tangy, spicy sauce that is great with any vegetable side dish and rice or other grains. Especially good (and energy efficient) with roasted veggies, which can cook along side the tofu. Tofu marinated and baked in a tangy, spicy sauce that is great with any vegetable side dish and rice or other grains.

1 block firm or extra firm tofu, drained, pressed and cut into 1/2" cubes
3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp yellow mustard
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp ground black pepper, or to taste
a pinch of cayenne pepper, or to taste
Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Pour marinaded tofu out onto the baking sheet, reserving and discarding any remaining marinade, and spread out making sure there is space between all the pieces. Lightly spray the top of the tofu with additional cooking spray. Place in the oven on the middle rack and bake for 25-35 minutes, or until the edges are starting to brown and the marinade has begun to caramelize.
Serves 2-4, depending on desired serving size (we usually make it into 2 meals here).

I didn't have any balsamic vinegar, so I used Newman's Own Balsamic vinaigrette dressing. I also turned the tofu about half way through so the tofu cubes became crispy on multiple sides. This was really good in a wrap with salad greens, red pepper hummus and carrots. - 5/6/12
I'm relatively new to cooking with tofu and started with this recipe since I had all of the ingredients already. I followed the recipe diligently and it did not taste good at all. You have to be careful to not leave any marinade on the baking dish, as it will burn in the oven. Do not recommend! - 8/7/11
This was my very first time ever cooking with tofu, and thanks to your recipe it tasted amazing!! This is a recipe I will make again and again! I made two substitutions, I used white wine vinegar (didn't have balsamic) and Chinese Hot Mustard instead of yellow (just personal preference). Thank you!! - 4/17/11
