 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       lb           Tofu, firm
    1 1/2   ts           Ginger, fresh -- grated
    1       t            Roasted sesame oil
    1                    Garlic clove (or more)
                         -minced
    2       tb           Tamari, or more to taste
    1 1/4   c             -- water
    1 1/2   tb           Arrowroot
 
    Slice the tofu into small rectangles of 1/4--1/2-inch
   thickness and place them in a shallow dish or baking
   pan.
   
    Mix together the ginger, sesame oil, garlic, tamari,
   and water. Pour this mixture over the tofu and let
   itmarinate for at least 30 minutes. (If desired, the
   tofu may be placed in the refrigerator to marinate for
   several hours or overnight).
   
    Remove the marinated tofu from the liquid, reserving
   the liquid to make the sauce. Place the tofu on a
   well-oiled cookie sheet and bake at 375 deg for 35-40
   mintues, or until the desired crispness is reached
   (the longer the tofu bakes the firmer and crisper it
   becomes).
   
    To make the sauce, mix the arrowroot with the
   marinade. Place the mixture in asmall saucepan and
   bring to a boil. Cook, stirring constantly, until
   thickened.
   
    Ginger Tofu may be served with or without the sauce.
    With the sauce, serve it over a bed of rice, millet,
   buckwheat, or pasta. Add your favorite stir-fried
   veggies and you have a colorful or nutritious meal.
    Ginger Tofu may also be added to a vegetable stew.
