My Jerk Cauliflower is one of the most popular recipes on here.  My Jerk Tofu recipe is just as amazing and it gives a flavor punch, it is a great dish to serve it with my Jamaican Rice And Peas and Baked  Plantains. 

I have had so many friends and family visit my family and me lately. I have recently had a friend who I haven't seen since high school, my cousin who I saw over 15 years ago, a brother and wife in over 8 years. 2018 so far has definitely been the year of reunion for me and it has been so wonderful. Tomorrow, I'm expecting a friend who I haven't seen in 7 years and the last time I saw her I made her and her twin sister my the Jerk Tofu recipe.

I grew up on Jerk chicken so making a Jamaican Jerk Tofu is a no-brainer. I love tofu because it absorbs the flavor of the jerk sauce.

How To Make Jerk Tofu

If using extra-firm tofu, wrap tofu block with paper towels and place on a cutting board, place a heavy object on the top of the tofu, like a book or a pot and allow excess liquid to drain.

I used super-firm tofu to make my  Jamaican jerk tofu,  it didn't need to be pressed to remove excess water. I highly recommend this type of tofu. I cut the tofu in cubes, marinated them with olive oil, Bragg's liquid aminos, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder. I wanted the maximum amount of flavor.

I baked the marinated cubes until they were crisp, then I smothered them with my amazing Jerk Sauce then I put it back in the oven for a final bake.

Note: Jerk Sauce can be prepared ahead and kept in the refrigerator.
