Baked Tofu

Recipe by: Susan Voisin

I use this tofu recipe for adding to stir-fries, rolling up in sushi, and serving with gravy on Thanksgiving.  It’s a great, easy all-around tofu recipe that even kids love (my daughter snacks on cubes of baked tofu).

  • 1 lb. extra-firm regular tofu (NOT silken)
  • about 1/8 cup soy sauce

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Slice tofu 1/4-inch thick. Brush each slice, back and front, with soy sauce and allow it to marinate for 10 minutes.

Place on a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake for 30-35 minutes, turning once halfway through, until a deep, golden brown and crispy on the outside but still tender on the inside. Remove from oven.

If using in a stir-fry, cut each slice of tofu into 8 cubes and add to stir-fry near the end.

For sushi, cut tofu lengthwise into about 6 thin strips.  Roll up with rice in nori rolls.

Slices of baked tofu are great served with a “chicken-style” or mushroom gravy.

Variations:

Add 1 tsp. sesame oil to the soy sauce for a great addition to stir-fries.

Add 1/4 tsp. of poultry seasoning or rosemary for a vegan turkey substitute.
