To make the marinade, combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and purée.

To use the marinade, pour into a large bowl and add up to 2 pounds of chicken breast or chicken pieces, pork chops or sliced firm tofu. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours and up to 1 day.

When ready to cook, transfer everything (marinade and all) to a baking dish and bake in a 425°F oven until cooked through; or remove the food from the marinade and grill it, then place the marinade into a small saucepan with 1/3 cup water and boil for at least 5 minutes before serving it along with the grilled food.
