Tofu Lettuce Wraps

1 lb organic extra firm tofu drained

1/2 cup water

1/4 cup tamari or low sodium soy sauce

2 tsp sesame oil

1 tbsp honey

1 tsp rice wine vinegar

1 clove garlic sliced

1 tbsp ginger

3 tbsp olive oil

Pre-heat oven 400.  Dice tofu into 1/2 inch cubes. place ingredients 2-8 in a medium sized bowl and whisk. Add the tofu and let marinate at least 4 hours, turning at least once.  I marinate mine overnight before I’m going to cook it.  After marinating, drain tofu.  Toss tofu in olive oil and bake for 30 minutes turning once in between until nice and brown.  Serve with sauteed diced peppers in a hearty leaf of lettuce.  In the picture we also had sesame brown rice.  Rice was prepared according to package directions then tossed with scallions, sesame seeds and 1 tsp sesame oil. Enjoy!
