2 cakes firm tofu
3 tablespoons tamari
3/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon five-spice powder
2 whole stars of star anise
1 teaspoon molasses
Cut each cake of tofu in half horizontally.
Combine marinade ingredients in a pot wide enough to accept the four tofu pieces in a single layer. Bring marinade to a boil and add tofu. Simmer, uncovered, on very low heat for 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and marinate for 3 hours, turning 2 or 3 times. Keep refrigerated and wrapped for a week.
