Remember how I made this homemade cranberry sauce the other day?
I found the perfect recipe to adapt and use it in from the All-American Vegetarian. You should go and check out her blog … some great recipes there!
Her recipe calls for using cranberry-orange chutney (which sounds amazing!) but that’s not what I had and I really think the hint of ginger in my homemade cranberry sauce might do the trick nicely. I also added more fresh ginger and some red chili flakes to the marinade to add some extra kick.
- 1 (14 oz.) package firm or extra-firm tofu
- ¾ cup Homemade Cranberry Sauce*
- 1 tablespoon Bragg's Liquid Soy Seasoning
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger (about ½" piece)
- 1 teaspoon coconut palm sugar
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
- ½ teaspoon dried chili flakes
- Slice tofu into ¼ inch slices, then cut each slice diagonally, into triangles.
- Press tofu to remove excess moisture. Place on a plastic cutting board lined with paper towel and cover with more paper towel. Place another cutting board on top and a heavy object on top. (I use my cast-iron skillet.) Let sit for 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients together in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
- Transfer marinade mixture to a shallow dish. Add pressed tofu triangles. Coat the tofu evenly with the marinade. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
- Preheat oven to 'Broil' setting.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Place tofu in an even layer on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
- Broil 5-7 minutes per side, until tofu is golden brown.

Tofu just hanging out with the great marinade.
Small confession here. I don’t have an ‘after’ picture. Because I got distracted while talking to a friend and burnt the whole one side of these tofu triangles. It still tasted great. But, all the pictures I took were … embarrassing.
I’m allowed to burn stuff once in a while right? So … yeah. That’s my story.
