Tassajara Tofu marinated with Parsley and Olive Oil

This tofu is a little unusual, as it is not cooked after marinating. It has a fresh, herb and garlic taste. It can be grilled or, if preferred, it can be baked at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.

2 (12 oz.) blocks, firm tofu
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup finely chopped parsley
1/2 tsp salt
pinch black pepper
3 tbsp capers
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
fresh herbs such as basil, oregano, or thyme (optional)
1/3 cup olive oil

Slice blocks of tofu into thirds and then each third into slices, then into cubes. Mix garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, capers, lemon juice, and fresh herbs, if using, in a small bowl. Let stand for a few minutes, and then pour in the olive oil; stir to combine. Coat each piece of tofu with the mixture and then layer in shallow sheet pan. Let stand overnight and serve on platters with a garnish of fresh herbs. Serve at room temperature.

Makes about 3 cups
