Equipment

  • Baking Dish
  • Mixing bowl
  • Whisk or fork
  • Knife
  • Cutting board
  • Baking Sheet
  • Aluminum foil

Ingredients
  

  • 4 large firm tofu fillets
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley or cilantro for garnish
  • Lemon wedges for serving

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, minced garlic, ground cumin, ground coriander, ground paprika, ground turmeric, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Whisk or stir until well combined.
  • Place the tofu fillets in a single layer in a baking dish. Pour the marinade over the tofu fillets, making sure they are evenly coated. Allow the tofu to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Transfer the marinated tofu fillets onto the prepared baking sheet. Reserve any remaining marinade.
  • Bake the tofu in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until the edges are slightly browned and crispy.
  • While the tofu is baking, pour the remaining marinade into a small saucepan and heat over low heat until warmed through. This will be used as a sauce for serving.
  • Once the tofu is done baking, remove it from the oven and let it cool slightly.
  • To serve, place the tofu fillets on a serving plate. Drizzle the warm marinade sauce over the tofu. Garnish with fresh parsley or cilantro.
  • Serve the vegan Egyptian Samak Makhbous with lemon wedges on the side. It pairs well with rice, couscous, or a salad.
