“I eat this regularly, usually on a salad with some fresh mushrooms or rice noodles or whatever you want. This tofu is good, even my absolute meat lover husband likes it, good texture and flavor!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. PlateTofu (very important for texture): place block of tofu in between 2 plates with paper towels on top and bottom. Place some thing heavy on top plate (whatever will stay put, I use a big peanut buuter jar or bananas). Alow to sit for at least 20 min, the longer it sits, the "meatier" the tofu.
  2. Preheat oven to 400.
  3. Slice block in half from left to right so you have two pieces the same as the original block's width and length.
  4. Mix remaining ingredients together (adjust anything to taste - sometimes I use lemon juice in place of soy sauce or add minced ginger).
  5. Baste top, bottom and sides of each tofu block and place onto pan sprayed with cooking spray (I use olive oil spray).
  6. Bake for 40 minutes, flip halfway through and rebaste if desired.
