Lemon Mustard Baked Tofu

Baking tofu is my new obsession. I love the process of draining it and then re-draining it and then watching it become a completely different texture. I found the method off of a Whole Foods site, and it is not hard. You can adapt it to your tastes like I have, but the basic method is simple.

Baking Tofu:

2 plates

5 sheets of paper towel

2 heavy objects

1 block of extra firm tofu


Drain as much water as you can from the tofu. Wrap in paper towel and place in between two plates with a heavy object on top, and repeat the process twice or three times as necessary, waiting forty minutes between each draining. Cut into triangles or cubes or slices.


Lemon Mustard Sauce

2 tablespoons whole grain mustard

2 teaspoons lemon juice


1 teaspoon olive oil

Mix all of the ingredients together and brush on the tofu. Bake on 375 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
