Lime Chilli marinated Tofu Casserole with Ginger Lime Sauce

Lime Chilli marinated Tofu Casserole with Ginger Lime SauceCreate a flavoursome nutritious Tofu  Casserole by marinating tofu in our zingy lime chilli marinade. Tofu contains loads of protein, but can be very bland, so combining with Jethros Lime Chilli and Oregano Marinade makes tofu taste amazing. Using the tofu in a casserole with our Ginger Lime sauce enables you to create a comforting and substantial dish full of flavours which everyone will enjoy.

For best results prepare the tofu the night before and leave marinading in the fridge.
