Cinnamon on Tofu? WHAT?!?!

Tofu with a bit of mashed sweet potatoes and edamame

Yesterday, we shared our recipe for Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Caramelized Onions, which was a side to some baked tofu I made. They went really nicely together. So without further ado, here’s the recipe for our Cinnamon-Spiced Baked Tofu. Hope you enjoy!

  1. Hi Macaroon! I'm Lisa, I have a blog called Greek Vegetarian, and I've been looking for a recipe for cinnamon baked tofu to add to a batch of roasted vegetables that I'll be cooking and blogging about tonight. I hope you don't mind me adapting your recipe for the tofu. Of course I will give you full credit and link back to your page. Great blog by the way!!

  2. Thank you! Sure! By all means, use it. That's why we've posted it!

    Love your food photography. I'm a bit envious because I really need to work on my photo skills or invest in a better camera.
