This Baked Jerk Tofu will bring you to Jamaica. Jerk has always been one of my favorite seasonings. There is something quite unique about it, probably because of the use of allspice berries. I remember the cookouts on the streets of Jamaica. The smell is something I will never forget… The hot grills, the salt air, the spices. Well, as you would expect, back in my kitchen, I still crave Jamaican cuisine. Often.

I have a dry jerk seasoning blend that I usually have on hand. I use it on roasted cashews all the time. I am not sure where I got the recipe as it was written on a piece of paper in one of my notebooks. But it was exactly what I needed here!

If you make this recipe, I’d love to see it. Please tag @LivityGardens on Instagram and use the hashtag #LivityGardens.
