Tasty Tofu Triangles

If you’ve been following this blog, you may recall my Scrumptious Cubes of Delight.  Well, now you’ve got to try these triangles of delight!

Step One – press the tofu:

  • wrap a block of tofu (I like to use medium-firm) in a clean tea towel
  • place the wrapped tofu on the counter and put 1 or 2 big, hardcover books on top
  • press for at least one hour – I try to press overnight

Step Two – make the marinade:

  • whisk together in a square Pyrex pan (or similar):
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2-3 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Step Three – cut the tofu:

  • cut the tofu block diagonally in half
  • flip each half on the side and cut into 1/4’s
  • flip back into a stack of 4 triangles and cut each stack into 2 triangles
  • cut those 4 triangle stacks into 2 again
  • you will end up with 32 triangles

Step Four – marinate the tofu:

  • toss the tofu triangles in the marinade
  • leave to marinade for 2-3 hours or longer
  • toss the triangles around occasionally
  • the tofu should soak up most of the marinade

Step Five – baking the tofu:

  • remove the tofu triangles from the marinade and place on a baking sheet
  • bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes until the underside is light brown
  • flip the triangles and bake for another 15 minutes until the other side is browned as well

Now you can eat the tasty triangles right off the pan!  I like to cool them, then put them on top of a salad that has been dressed with the same marinade.  Like so:
