Cranberry-Soy Glazed Tofu

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.

Cranberry-Soy Marinade

adapted from All-American Vegetarian’s recipe

Cranberry-Soy Glazed Tofu
  • 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
  1. Slice tofu into ¼ inch slices, then cut each slice diagonally, into triangles.
  2. 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.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients together in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
  4. 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.
  5. Preheat oven to 'Broil' setting.
  6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Place tofu in an even layer on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
  8. 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.
