Broiled Tofu

A few slices of tofu, marinated for a couple minutes in a mixture of: tamari, lemon juice, hot mustard, spices (ginger, cumin, coriander, black pepper, onion, garlic, paprika, chipotle).

That's an inexpensive tile we bought from Home Depot for about 60 cents. It worked great, gave the tofu a nice crust. I turned them a few times. It took about 10 minutes total on a low broil setting.

These are great in a sandwich, like a BLT (bacon, lettuce, tomato), except a TLT. Especially if you use smoked paprika in the marinade.

Oh my, you are making my mouth water! Can you describe the marinade and what the function of the foil is? I'd love to try these.

I just spread the sauce (a teaspoon ea. tamari and lemon and mustard, a spit of the spices) on a plate, turned the slices in the sauce a few times to coat, and in they went. Letting them sit in the marinade would be better but I was short on time. The foil was to catch drips, but they didn't drip so I won't use it next time.

That's an unglazed floor tile. Not a cooking tile, but we use it like one.

I mistakenly left the mustard out when I first posted it. Hot mustard makes a big difference.
