Jerk Tofu

This was the first time I tried both jerk seasoning and baking tofu and I was really pleased with how it turned out. It goes very well with Bean and Potato Stew.


  • 250g block of firm tofu, cut into 2cm pieces
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely sliced
  • 1 chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 cloves, finely crushed
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger


  1. Mix all the ingredients apart from the tofu together in a bowl to make the marinade.
  2. Add the tofu and ensure it's well coated in the marinade.
  3. Leave to marinade for at least 2 hours, but it's best left overnight.
  4. Place the tofu on a baking tray, spooning any left over marinade over the pieces.
  5. Bake in an oven at 180 degrees for 10 minutes, then turn the tofu and bake for a further 10 minutes. When turning the tofu, spoon any remaining marinade over it (this is basting it).
  6. Serve once the tofu is golden brown.
Serves 2.
