Bay and Orange Infused Tofu

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 93


1 (14-ounce) package extra firm tofu
8 bay leaves
2 tablespoons tamari sauce
1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
2 tablespoons fruit sweetened orange marmalade
2 tablespoons water
pinch cayenne pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Oil a baking sheet and set aside.
2. Slice the tofu into 8 slices about 1/2-inch thick. Into the side of each slice, cut a slit that is deep enough to hold a bay leaf. Being careful not to break the tofu, insert a bay leaf into each slit. Place the slices on the prepared baking sheet.
3. Combine the tamari and liquid smoke in a small bowl. Lightly brush a bit of this mixture over the top of each tofu slice, then place in the oven. While the tofu is baking, add the marmalade to the remaining tamari mixture, stir well, and set aside.
4. After the tofu has baked for 20 minutes, turn the slices over and brush with some of the tamari mixture. Continue to bake another 10 minutes.

5. Add the water to the remaining tamari mixture, stir well, and place in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Transfer the baked tofu to the skillet and simmer 3 to 4 minutes.
6. Serve immediately with leftover marinade.
