Baked Marinated Tofu Sticks
Many people think of Tofu as boring and bland, steering clear of cooking with it; and certainly its appearance and texture doesn’t do much to elevate it to the star status it actually deserves.
What I love about Tofu, is its sponge like qualities making it the perfect vehicle to absorb flavours and add depth to any dish.
Cooking with Tofu provides an opportunity to experiment with a variety of bold and intoxicating flavours you wouldn’t ordinarily combine.
It’s a versatile and robust ingredient that can be combined with meat, chicken, fish, in soup, curries, salads and in desserts.
These Tofu Sticks are a wonderful platform to showcase Tofu as the main ingredient.
Marinating the Tofu allows the many flavours to permeate through the Tofu and when baked, results in a healthy, light and full of flavour snack for the entire family to enjoy.
