I'm Allison. I see a ton of theatre. I'm a huge fan of Green Day, Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, Weezer, Oasis, Adam Rapp, Emily Giffin, and Shakespeare. I run sometimes, and do yoga always. My life has changed a lot in the last year, so this is my account of it all.

I went to a Memorial Day BBQ this weekend and the host was vegetarian and hostess was vegan, so I pulled out this recipe for “Baked Sesame Tofu” that my aunt gave me back in March.  Apparently she’d been to a friend’s house for a party where this dish was served and so many people asked for the recipe that she sent it in their holiday card the following year.  I decided it was the perfect dish to make for my friend’s party, and it was incredibly easy.  

I don’t have a picture of the final product unfortunately - we cooked it on the grill last night and photographing the finished product was the last thing on my mind.  I didn’t taste it either but I received lots of compliments so I think it was a hit.  Here’s the recipe:  

  1. Slice tofu block into 1/2 inch slabs.
  2. For the marinade combine 1tbs olive oil, 1 tbs sesame oil, 2 tbs apple cider vinegar, one tbs soy sauce (or tamari), 1/2 tbs sweetner (honey, sugar, etc), and salt, pepper, and cayenne to taste.
  3. Marinate the tofu for at least 3 hours (I marinated overnight).
  4. Bake at 350* for 20 minutes on each side.
  5. Sprinkle each side with sesame seeds.

Happy Memorial Day!
