Oven-roasted Tofu Mediterranean for Caterers

An aromatic and delicious recipe. If you don't use tofu because it's an unfamiliar ingredient or you are concerned that it's tasteless, this should persuade you! It would work best with a couple of other accompaniments - some are suggested below.

Wholesale wholefood suppliers stock it (see below) but don't forget Oriental suppliers - Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese supermarkets and wholesalers, many of whom deliver. We found excellent firm and other types in 500g blocks for a very reasonable price - the branded fresh tofu (eg Unicurd, Pulmone or Tofu King) will be labelled non-GM but some of these brands also do an organic range. The unlabelled tofu doesn't give any details as to provenance.

Gluten or wheat-free option?
Use Tamari soya sauce - it's GF and WF - and there are several brands, eg Sanchi, Clearspring and Essential, many available from large supermarket branches as well as health food shops.

For those wanting to find out more about tofu and other soya products and whether they're a healthy or 'green' choice or not - check out our Safety of Soya for all the science, FAQs etc

Ingredients: 

  • 2 K plain firm tofu, cut into cubes
  • 8 tbsp plain soya sauce – preferably shoyu or tamari – if using tamari, reduce by 1-1 ½ tbsp as it is stronger
  • 4 tbsp oil, any kind. Olive oil or leftover oil from a jar of sundried tomatoes is good!
  • 8 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 4 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 4 heaped tsp paprika
  • Black pepper, lots
  • 450g cherry tomatoes, red and/or yellow 

 

 

 
 
 

Method: 

  1. Pre-heat oven to 225°C/450°F/Gas Mark 7. The ingredients can be prepared while the oven is heating.
  2. Place everything in a large metal oven dish (fairly deep). Using clean hands or a large spoon, gently toss everything together so that the tofu is evenly coated.Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the cubes are brown on top.
  3. Gently turn over the cubes so the paler bits get a chance to brown.
  4. Return to the oven and bake for another 15-20 minutes – longer if it needs to crisp up a bit more round the edges.
