Serves: 4 person(s)

Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: 35 mins
Extra Time: 1 hrs (for marinating)

Ingredients:

    457.14 g extra firm tofu, drained
    3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
    2 tsp soybean oil (vegetable oil)
    2 Tbsp sugar
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves, crushed
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 sweet red pepper (bell pepper), quartered
    4 medium onion, quartered
    4 medium mushrooms, quartered
    1 Tbsp chopped parsley, for garnish

Directions:

    Cut tofu in half vertically then horizontally. Drain on several layers of paper towels to remove as much liquid as possible. If desired, score surfaces to allow more marinade to penetrate the tofu.

    Combine vinegar, oil, sugar, garlic, oregano and salt; mix well.

    Place tofu and vegetables in a shallow baking pan leaving enough space between the pieces for even roasting; brush with vinegar mixture. Let stand for 30 minutes, brush again and let stand 30 minutes longer.

    Bake tofu, pepper and onion at 500F for 30 to 35 minutes. Turn once halfway through baking time. Add mushrooms during last half of roasting time. Transfer to platter and sprinkle with parsley.

Variations:

    As a cooling relish, serve soy yogurt, drizzled with oil and topped with slivered nuts and pomegranate seeds.
