Marinated Tofu with Peppers and Onions is a simple way of cooking tofu. It makes for a really delicious and easy vegetarian Southwestern style lunch, that even meat eaters are guaranteed to enjoy. Prepare... the marinade ahead of time so that if feeling worn out from treatment, a good meal is literally just a baking sheet away.
In a re-sealable plastic bag, combine the tofu, red pepper, red onion, salt and pepper and 1/4 cup of the marinade. Shake the bag around until well coated. Let sit to marinate for at least 20 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Spread the tofu and vegetables on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 20 to 30 minutes, flipping the tofu halfway through.
Serve with whole wheat tortillas, sliced avocadoes and the reserved marinade as sauce.
While making the marinade, drain the tofu. It will absorb more of the marinade’s flavor. Here’s how:
Cover a cutting board with a couple layers of paper towels. Set it next to the sink.
Add a chopstick or other utensil under one side of the board to tilt it slightly so that any water from the tofu drains into the sink. Lay the block of tofu on the board and cover with more paper towels.
Lay a second board on top of the tofu + a weight of some sort. Use bottles of water. Leave the tofu like this for about 30 minutes.
Pat the tofu dry, slice and proceed with the recipe as above.
