Huli Huli Tofu

Huli Huli Tofu

Serves 6

Huli means “turned” and describes a marinade that is commonly used on rotisserie-cooked chicken. This veg-friendly version features tofu.
  • ¼ cup plus 1 Tbs. wheat-free low-sodium tamari or low-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 3 Tbs. dark brown sugar or maple syrup
  • 3 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbs. dry sherry
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (1 Tbs.)
  • 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 2 14-oz. pkg. extra-firm or super-firm tofu, drained, each block cut into 3 slabs
  • 1 small onion, sliced into ½-inch-thick rings
  • 3 Tbs. finely chopped parsley

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Whisk together tamari, tomato paste, brown sugar, lemon juice, sherry, garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes, and 1 cup water in 13- x 9-inch casserole dish. Add tofu, turning to coat with sauce, and top cutlets with onion rings. Bake 30 minutes, flipping tofu once or twice.

2. Meanwhile preheat grill or grill pan. Grill tofu cutlets 3 minutes on each side, basting occasionally with sauce.

3. Transfer cutlets to serving platter, and top with onion rings and remaining sauce. Garnish with parsley.

I have made this three times in the last two months. It is excellent. After the first 20 minutes, I basted the tofu again and cranked the oven to 395 degrees for 10 minutes, then charcoal grilled, turning every few minutes until the marinade was caramelized and delicious. Yum. Definitely adding to my recipe box due to little prep and flavorful results.

Turned out pretty good... I halved the recipe and the tomato paste taste was over powering the rest of the flavors... other than that a nice dinner!
