Tahini Baked Tofu with Peas

Lent is upon us and as always, I am looking for recipes that might make the Lenten season pass a little easier and a little tastier.  I came across a recipe for Tahini Baked Tofu, but frankly it looked a little plain and a little tasteless, as much as I love tahini.  So I went to work fixing it up a bit and here is the result.  Remember, before beginning make sure you drain and press the tofu thoroughly.  It should be pressed for at least 20 minutes.  30 minutes is better.


  • 1 lb extra firm tofu
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 2 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 can sweet or pigeon peas
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Oil a flat baking pan or dish
  3. Cut tofu into 1/4 – 1/2 inch slices
  4. Place in the pan so that the slices overlap
  5. Drain peas thoroughly and spread evenly in pan
  6. Mix the sauce ingredients in a bowl until it is a cream like consistency
  7. Add a little water to thin if needed
  8. Pour mixture over tofu
  9. Sprinkle lightly and evenlywith breadcrumbs
  10. Bake until lightly golden – about 20 minutes
