Balsamic Butter Tofu Bites


– 1 14-ounce package extra-firm tofu, drained, cubed (3/4-inch) and patted dry – 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil – 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided – 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper – 5 tablespoons balsamic vinegar – 2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard – 1 teaspoon brown sugar – 1 tablespoon unsalted butter – 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil – 1 scallion, thinly sliced


Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler to High. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil.

Toss tofu, oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper together in a medium bowl. Arrange in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.

Broil until lightly browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Return the tofu to the medium bowl. 

Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, mustard, brown sugar and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer, 

stirring often, until thickened and syrupy, about 5 minutes. Whisk in butter until melted; remove from heat. Add the sauce to the tofu; toss until evenly coated. 

Using a slotted spoon, transfer the tofu pieces to the same baking sheet. Broil until nicely browned, 3 to 5 minutes more.  

Use tongs to transfer to a platter, leaving any burned sauce behind. Drizzle with the excess sauce from the bowl, then sprinkle with basil and scallions.
