      Mix the soy sauce, vinegar, and oil in a container that is small but big enough for all the tofu.
    3. 3
      Cut the tofu in half inch slices and place in marinade.
    4. 4
      Turn it over after about 15 minutes.
    5. 5
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    6. 6
      Wipe some of the oil from the marinade on your baking sheet.
    7. 7
      Arrange the tofu slices in one layer and bake for 15 minutes.
    8. 8
      Turn them over and bake another 15 minutes.

      OMG this is so good. I used low sodium soy sauce and added 1/4 cup water as some reviewers said this was too salty. I loved it. Even ate the leftovers cold. I could have eaten the whole 16 ounces in one sitting easily, but thought I probably better not. I also didn't add any oil, as I didn't have sesame oil, but will add it next time. Can only make it better.

      I have to agree with the other reviewer in that this dish was way too salty for my taste. I didn't realize that the tofu (we used extra-firm) would soak up the majority of the marinade. If I make this again I will water down the soy sauce or use the low sodium kind. I sprinkled the baked tofu with some sesame seeds and cut green onion, which made for a nice touch.

      Wow was this salty. I love the idea of how simple the recipe is and easy to prepare. I didn't have rice vinegar so I used balsamic. The flavor was nice. But man oh man was this salty. I felt guilty giving it to my kids. I even used low sodium soy sauce. The texture didn't really change once it was cooked- which is fine for us (another reviewer mentioned that it had for them). I was attempting the tofu stick idea, but in the end I still had to cut it into smaller pieces. Thirty minutes to marinade and 30 minutes to cook is a long time as well. One hour was a bit much for me on a busy weeknight. We ate it and it filled us up. I'll be hydrating my family with lots of water for the rest of the evening though...
