What you need: 

[u]Balsamic Baked Tofu[/u]:
1/2 (12-ounce) block extra firm tofu, sliced into 1/2" slabs
2 tablespoons chopped rosemary + several sprigs rosemary
sea salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
1/2 medium sweet or red onion, cut in half and sliced thin lengthwise
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

1-1/2 tablespoons olive oil [u]Caprese Sandwich[/u]:
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
sea salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
1 large tomato, sliced
spray cooking oil
sourdough bread, sliced
vegan mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
6 fresh medium basil leaves

What you do: 

[u]Balsamic Baked Tofu[/u]1. Dry tofu: Place tofu slabs on several paper towels. Place several more paper towels on top of tofu slabs. Pat them dry with paper towels to remove most moisture.
2. Sprinkle each side of tofu slabs with chopped rosemary, sea salt, and black pepper. Place rosemary sprigs, onion, and garlic on a medium sized baking tray. Lay tofu slabs on top of vegetables.
3. In a bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, vegetable broth, and olive oil. Spoon over vegetables in baking tray. Cover with tin foil and let it marinate for 2 to 24 hours in the refrigerator.
4. Take tin foil off of baking tray, flip over tofu slabs, and spoon marinade over tofu. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 to 13 minutes. Remove baking tray from oven, spoon marinade over tofu slabs again, bake for another 15 minutes. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes.
[u]Caprese Sandwich[/u]5. In a bowl, mix together balsamic vinegar, olive oil, sea salt, and black and pepper. Add sliced tomato and marinate one side for a bit, then flip to the other side.
6. Spray cooking oil on one side of bread slices. Lay oiled side down in a large frying pan and toast over medium heat. Flip, spray with cooking oil, and let the other side brown. While this side is toasting, place soy mozzarella on bread and let it melt.
7. Take one piece of sliced bread with cheese, place basil leaves on the bread, then several pieces of tofu slab. Add the onion-rosemary-garlic mixture from baking pan to top of tofu slab on the bread. Add tomato slice on top of that. Top with another piece of toasted bread.
