Sweet Gingery Tofu

I found this recipe on and was pretty skeptical of my husband and one of my sons would eat it. Let's just say we didn't have any leftovers that night :)

1 lb firm or extra firm tofu, rinsed
1/4 C Rice Vinegar
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Honey
2 Tbsp Ginger, minced (I used Gourmet Garden's ginger, found in a tube in the produce aisle)
2 Tbsp Sesame Oil
2 cloves Garlic, minced
Sesame Seeds

Pre-heat oven to 350*
Wrap the tofu in a clean dish towel and weight down (I used another plate) for 10 minutes to remove the excess water
Cut tofu into even 1/2 inch slices
Line the tofu on a 11x7 inch baking dish
Mix together the remaining ingredients except for the sesame seeds
Pour evenly over the tofu
Sprinkle with sesame seeds
Bake for 40 minutes

*This sauce could also be used for baking fish or chicken.
