Easy Baked Tofu


  • Prep Time: 40 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 55 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 2-3 1x

Description

A quick soy sauce marinade and 15 minutes in the oven yield springy, slightly crispy tofu that is perfect in rice bowls or on salads. 


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 block tofu, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil

Instructions

  1. Whisk together the mirin, rice vinegar, soy sauce, and sesame oil in a shallow dish. Add the tofu and marinate for 30 minutes. 
  2. Preheat the oven to 425F and transfer the tofu to a baking sheet lined with a silpat or parchment paper. Reserve the marinade. 
  3. Bake the tofu for 15 minutes until lightly crispy at the edges. 
  4. Meanwhile, simmer the marinade in a small pot until reduced by about a third. 
  5. Serve as desired. YES. 

Notes

I love this for meal prep, and make two or three blocks of tofu at a time to use throughout the week. 

This is great on rice bowls, over veggie curry, or in salads! 

The reduced marinade is wonderful as a salad dressing or drizzled over the baked tofu and rice.
