I know, I know. This blog is supposed to be lunches only. But when you make up your own AWESOME recipe, you just want to tell the world. Especially when it's vegan and gluten free.
So here it is: Balsamic baked tofu. So simple, so yummy. Served with a side of brown rice and peas, it's heaven. I cooked my brown rice in some veggie broth, just FYI. It gave it a really nice flavor.
BALSAMIC BAKED TOFU:
Here's what you'll need:
1 block of pressed extra firm organic tofu
about 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar
Salt-free spice bend, to taste (I used Mrs. Dash)
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Here's what to do:
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix the balsamic vinegar, olive oil and Mrs. Dash together in a little bowl.
3. Slather (ew, icky word) it all over your tofu. Stick your tofu in the fridge and let it marinate for an hour AT THE LEAST!
3. Pop your tofu in the oven and let it cook for about 40 minutes, checking it periodically.
