Braised Tofu

After experimenting with several methods, this is by far one of the easiest- and most flavorful!

1 package firm or extra firm tofu
soy sauce
chicken or vegetable stock-
1-2 cloves of garlic
1/2 shallot (optional)
thumb-size piece of ginger, peeled and grated
salt and pepper


Preheat to 400 degrees.

Dry the tofu and slice or cube. Set in a baking dish. Sprinkle the garlic, ginger, and shallot around the tofu. Pour in water, stock, soy sauce, wine, and olive oil. The liquid should just be enough to create a shallow bath at the base of the tofu. Turn the cubes over several times to soak in the mixture.
