This recepie looks absolutely delicious! I am new to using Tofu and I went out and got some to try this recepie out. I got extra firm tofu. Then I noticed that the recepie says baked tofu. Do you buy it already baked, or should I bake it first? Also, should I marinate it in soy sauce?

 

Thanks,

I didn't have baked tofu so I used extra-firm and it was fine. I didn't marinate the tofu--just added it. It absorbed flavor of the herb and soy sauce mixture. Oh, and I used cilantro instead of mint.

I'm going to the grocery store today and will pick up ingredients. This sounds perfect for summer.

 

Thanks for taking the time to post. :)
