    Spicy Baked Tofu Haiku: "I just love tofu, but it needs to be drained more. (Extra-firm is best.) Can't imagine only draining the liquid for a mere 5 min., when I usually set my tofu (this recipe doesn't specify what kind, but I prefer extra-firm for marinating and baking) b/t paper-towel lined plates, weighed down w/ heavy cans or cast-iron skillet. This marinade is wonderful, and flavorful but could really benefit from the addition of minced garlic and maybe some sesame oil; I sprinkled mine w/ toasted sesame seeds and green onion. Super nommy as written!  -  25 Jun 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was actually some of the best tofu I've ever made. Can't recommend enough. Spicy, tangy, filling, delicious!!! Bookmarked to use again. I added a little oil to the marinade  -  07 May 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I LOVED this! Since I don't eat meat, I'm always looking for new tofu recipes. This was perfect and easy enough to remember without having to look at the recipe each time. Totally forgot to take a pic when done as the aroma prompted me to began eating immediately ??  -  18 Nov 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
