Baked tofu is one of the world's best-kept secrets. Of course, you can buy it prepackaged, but it's so simple to make and so delicious that once you make it yourself, nothing else will compare!
12 ounces extra firm organic tofu
1 batch of our Tofu Marinade
Preheat oven to 350° Lightly grease a baking sheet or cover with a piece of parchment paper.
Tofu absorbs a lot more flavor if you squeeze the water out first. The Tofu Press is a great tool for doing just that! If you don't have one, wrap the tofu in a clean cloth and press down gently to remove the excess water.
Once you've removed the water, cut the block of tofu horizontally into thirds. Then cut each third lengthwise into four or five strips. Finally, cut each of these into 6 to 8 cubes depending on the desired size.
Place the tofu into a medium-sized container and pour the marinade over the tofu. Gently toss to coat the tofu with the marinade. Allow the tofu to marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to several hours.
Place the tofu in a single layer on the baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, turning halfway through.
Garnish with sesame seeds and fresh parsley if desired, and serve next to a bed of rice and stir-fried veggies.
