  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce or tamari
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried turmeric


  1. Whisk all of everything except the tofu in a bowl. Place the cubed tofu in a shallow dish and pour the marinade on, stirring it up and allow it to sit for at least 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. While it’s marinating, you can chop some vegetables for stir fry and get some rice cooking. Add a tablespoon of flour to the marinated tofu and toss to coat. Bake for 25 minutes.
