Baked Sesame/cilantro glazed tofu


1 block extra-firm tofu
2 tbsp finely minced fresh cilantro
4 tbsp sesame seeds
1/8 cup vegan Italian dressing
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/8 cup sweet chili sauce
pinch of salt
olive oil or pan spray
one large or two small cloves garlic, crushed and minced

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

Cut the block of tofu into thin slices, place into a shallow pan.
Mix the liquid ingredients, garlic, salt, cilantro, and sesame seeds together. Pour over tofu and marinate for 30 minutes, occasionally rotating the tofu around in the marinade to cover all surfaces well.

Use pan spray or olive oil to grease a baking sheet. After it has marinated, place tofu on the sheet and then pour remaining marinade over the tofu. Bake for 15 minutes, flip, bake another 15 minutes.

This was for lunch today. We also had fried potatoes and onions, green beans, and avocado. The girls polished it all off and both asked for more tofu. In fact, four year-old said, "More of everything, momma."
