Za'atar Tofu
  • 1 Block (15oz) Extra firm tofu
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 tsp. Oregano, dried
  • 1 tsp. Sumac
  • 1 tsp. Cumin
  • 1 tsp. Sesame seeds
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1/4 tsp. Black pepper
Herb Yogurt Sauce
  • 5 oz. Plain non dairy yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. Chives, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. Parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. Agave syrup
  • Juice of 1/2 a Lemon
  • Pinch of Salt and Pepper
  1. You first want to press your tofu. Either with a tofu press, or by placing something heavy on top. Press for at least 15 minutes, but the longer the better.

  2. When you are ready to make the tofu, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 

  3. Then cut the tofu into cubes and place in a bowl. Drizzle the olive oil on top, then toss to coat the tofu. 

  4. Then sprinkle in all the seasonings, and toss to coat all the tofu cubes in the spice mixture. 

  5. Place all the tofu on a baking sheet, and bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until the tofu is all brown and firm and a bit crispy. 

  6. While the tofu is baking, make the yogurt sauce. Add all the ingredients for the herb yogurt sauce to a small mixing bowl. Stir to combine everything. Then, taste and adjust seasoning. Set aside. 

  7. Once the tofu is done, serve immediately with flat bread, drizzled with herb yogurt sauce!
