Baked Tofu Marinara Steaks
1-Pound tofu, rinsed, pressed, and drained- cut into thick, even slices
1c prepared Marinara (see recipe)
1T olive oil
1T shoyu or Tamari
2T maple syrup OR coconut sugar
Pink salt and pepper to taste
Pinch cayenne pepper *optional
2T nutritional yeast
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
In a small bowl, mix all of the ingredients except the tofu.
In a shallow baking dish, spoon most of the marinara mixture over the bottom of the dish. In one layer, place the tofu on top of the sauce, then spoon the remaining sauce over the tofu. I turn the tofu over in the pan several times to get a good marinara covering prior to baking. Then spoon some over the top.
Top with additional nutritional yeast or Vegan cheese your choice.
Bake for 45 minutes.
Serve hot or cold. Delicious with gluten free pasta, Sprouted brown rice or quinoa.
