Herb Marinated Tofu and Green beans

When I was little we visited a restaurant that specialized in herbs. For years I remembered how tasty my herb marinated chicken was, but it was only this week that I decided to try creating a vegan version, and I love it.

The herbs are crucial in this recipe, you can try replacing some of them but I definitely recommend the ones I used, and please use fresh herbs!

Since it’s a marinade, the tofu will be more delicious if you marinade longer – 2 hours is the minimum and overnight is even better.

Instructions
Prepare the Tofu
  1. Tofu absorbs marinades best when squeezed well. it may sound strange but it would work best if you - freeze, unfreeze and squeeze the water out - by using this method more water will come out of the Tofu and more marinade can absorb. if you haven't got time for it - skip the next step -squeeze gently and marinade.
  2. cut the tofu into long fingers, freeze for at least 1-2 hours. unfreeze for 0.5-1 hours and now gently squeeze the tofu without breaking it.
Marinade
  1. Caramelize the onion - fry the onion in olive oil, add the date honey and keep on a low heat for about 30-40 minutes (if needed, add just a bit of water at a time). when very soft and brown, turn off the fire.
  2. Use a wide and not-too-deep baking pan, add all the ingredients of the marinade and stir well. add the tofu and put in the fridge for a few hours.
  3. Bake in 200 degrees C for 1 hour. add the green beans and bake another 30 minutes.
  4. Serve with rice, I used red rice and it was a good match.
