Directions

Cut the tofu into 4 slabs. Marinate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight (refrigerate). The tofu can marinate several days.

Drain and press the tofu to remove excess water. Simmer mushrooms in water for 15 minutes. Toast the oregano in a small frying pan over a medium flame until it becomes aromatic, without burning it. Combine the remaining ingredients, adding the oregano when it’s ready. Then combine with the summering mushrooms. Bring to a boil and simmer a few minutes longer.
