tomato marinated tofu



my mom sent me ths recipe. it's a page torn out of a magazine, i don't know which one, but it's swedish. it came with an article about a swedish buddhist monk. a female one! it was kind of neat. anyway, it's so good that i definately will make it again, maybe i'll just make the marinade and use it as pasta sauce, because it's amazing.

ingredients:
9-10 oz of tofu
1/4 cup tomato paste
1/4 cup water
2 teaspoons or a couple of cloves garlic, minced
4 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons maple syrup (the recipe called for honey)
2 tablespoons oil
a few teaspoons of basil
1/4 teaspoon ginger
chili sauce to taste

directions:
cut the tofu in pieces, squares about an inch big, half an inch thick. mix all the other ingredients together. pour about half of the marinade in a casserole dish. place the tofu on top, evenly spaced. pour the rest of the marinade on top and set aside for a few hours or over night (i only had patience for about 40 minutes).

put in the oven at 425 degrees. after about 10-15 minutes, turn the tofu over. let cook for another 15 or so minutes or until it starts smelling yummy. serve over pasta. (the recipe said with baked potato, but i thought pasta would work better. it did.)
