7 tablespoons EVOO, divided
1 (14-oz.) pkg. extra-firm tofu, cubed
1 large (about 16 oz.) eggplant, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1 (28-oz.) can whole peeled tomatoes (such as San Marzano), drained and chopped
2 garlic cloves, grated
1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano, plus more for garnish
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
3 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
Chopped fresh mint
Preheat broiler with an oven rack 6 inches from heat.
Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil; swirl to coat. Add tofu; cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Remove tofu from skillet. Add 1/4 cup oil and eggplant slices in a single layer; cook, without stirring, until browned, about 4 minutes. Flip eggplant slices; cook until tender, about 4 minutes. Remove skillet from heat.
Combine tomatoes, garlic, oregano, cinnamon, cumin, salt, and crushed red pepper in a medium bowl.
Top eggplant evenly with tofu. Spoon tomato mixture over eggplant and tofu. Drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon oil; sprinkle with feta. Broil until cheese begins to brown, about 4 minutes. Garnish with chopped mint and oregano.
