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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wrap the tofu in paper towels and press under a heavy skillet for 15 minutes. If it's still pretty wet, replace the towels and press it again.
  2. Mix the soy sauce, vinegar, and oil in a container that is small but big enough for all the tofu.
  3. Cut the tofu in half inch slices and place in marinade.
  4. Turn it over after about 15 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  6. Wipe some of the oil from the marinade on your baking sheet.
  7. Arrange the tofu slices in one layer and bake for 15 minutes.
  8. Turn them over and bake another 15 minutes.
