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.

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

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.)
