[the best] Marinated Tofu Steaks

Tofu is a bittersweet delectable for me.

I love the boost it gives my body. It's very low in not-so-healthy stuff: cholesterol, sodium, and sugar. And is super high in healthy stuff: calcium, iron, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, and selenium. Which is all the sweet part, obviously. But on the bitter side of things: it's so processed. I don't really get down like that.

But last night when I asked BandMan if he had any requests for dinner, he did request a "hearty meat and potatoes" type dinner. And specifically asked for tofu. So here we are. I'm not going to lie, this shit was unreal.

I don't mean to toot my own horn, buuuuuut it was the best tofu dish I have ever prepared, or had the pleasure of consuming.  Seriously.

BandMan agreed.


Tofu

1 package ex-firm tofu
1 batch of marinade
  1. Cut the block of tofu lengthwise into 3 pieces. 
  2. Cut the 3 pieces into triangles.
  3. Cover your 6 triangles in the marinade. Let it soak up those juices for up to 8 hours and then pan fry it or bake it until you're ready to eat it.

Marinade

3 tbsp tamari
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp liquid smoke
1 tsp rice wine vinegar
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp basil
white pepper, to taste
tabasco, to taste
  1.  Mix all together.
I served this awesome tofu w/ baked potatoes, brussels sprouts, & broccoli + cauliflower
