Put crumbled tofu in a bowl. Place a heavy bowl over the tofu to press out as much liquid as you can. Place bowls on a plate to drain in the refrigerator overnight.
Saute onion and garlic until caramelized. Combine marinade ingredients.
Mix drained tofu with spices. Pour marinade over tofu. Let marinate at least 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 425*F. Bake tofu for 2 hours or until browned. Baste every 15 minutes.
