Before you start

Make the tofu glaze

  • Zest and juice the lemon, grate the garlic, mince the red chilli and peel and grate the ginger
  • Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk to incorporate

Prepare the tofu

  • Cut each piece of tofu in to 3 slices
  • Cut each slice in to a triangle but slicing from diagonal corner to diagonal corner

Bake the tofu

  • Place in a single layer in a casserole dish and cover with the sauce
  • Bake for 40-60 minutes until the tofu is golden brown and the marinade has reduced to a very thick syrup (check after 20 mins and every 10 minutes thereafter)

Serve and enjoy!

  • Serve on its own as part of a platter of nibbles or with rice and pak choi as part of a light, Asian-inspired meal.
