 Marinated Sesame Tofu on Ciabatta

Photo by: Joseph DeLeo

Forget thinking that tofu lacks taste. In this recipe, it's marinated overnight to soak up the most intensely delicious flavor and then roasted until it's a glossy, golden brown. The dense, rustic ciabatta bread provides a chewy contrast.

Yield: Makes 6 servings

  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup sherry vinegar
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup toasted sesame oil
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 8-ounce package extra-firm tofu, drained
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 2 loaves ciabatta bread
  • 1 seedless cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups arugula


1. Whisk together the soy sauce, vinegar, vegetable oil, sesame oil, and Dijon mustard. Set aside.

2. Cut tofu into ¼-inch-thick slices. Place in a shallow dish in a single layer. Pour the soy sauce mixture over the tofu. Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate overnight.

3. Preheat oven to 400°F. Remove the tofu from the marinade, reserving the marinade. Place tofu on a baking sheet and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake until the tofu is browned, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

4. Cut the ciabatta into 6 pieces; cut each piece in half horizontally. Whisk the marinade again to emulsify it. Brush some of the marinade on the cut sides of the bread. Divide the cucumber slices among the bread bottoms. Layer with tofu and arugula. Add bread tops.


I love that some of our older students have really developed a passion for cooking and eating good food. When they began to save their money for good quality kitchen tools, I knew they were hooked!
