directions

  • Slice tofu into about half inch slices. Place on nonstick baking tray so they are pretty crowded.
  • Pour over them the yummy soy sauce.
  • marinade. No need to pre-marinate. (I MARINATED IN THE REFRIGERATOR APPROX 75MIN).
  • Bake for about 1/2 hour at 400.

  • Its crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside and delicious.

    The way to make it come out crunchy is to cut them a little thinner. Another thing that works is to add sesame oil-- the oil helps it come out crunchy. I use Flora organic sesame oil.

    Fantastic flavor. I pressed the water out of the tofu first because I always do. I followed the recipe exactly and baked this 40 minutes, but it was not even a little bit crunchy which was disappointing. This is the reason for only three stars. Thanks for posting, fawn512. I'd really love this if it did come out crunchy.

    really easy to prepare...and, tastes good - i just wish i could have gotten mine to come out crunchy on the outside...that would make it amazing

    Thank you for the great recipe. I like that it was simple, so I didn't have to go out and buy anything extra for it. I substituted agave for the honey and dried, ground ginger (more or less about a teaspoon) for the fresh ginger.

    Yum Yum Yum! Followed this recipe to the T and it tasted great baked or cooked on the pan! Didnt had time to marinate it long, prob abt 5-10 min but it didnt really affect the taste. However, if you do take this to pan or wok, try not to stir fry this or you end up with very mushy beancurd which well, may not look too appetising to your guests. Try simmering the marinated beancurd cubes to the pan/wok and slide them onto the serving dish when ready. Thanks fawn for sharing this healthy recipe!

I came to love baking just last 2004. And I pretty much self taught. I gather information through the internet and Zaar,w/c helped me a lot. Especially the kind and very helpful posters in the forum. Because of my passsion, i enrolled for a Bakery ARts and Pastry Diploma. And now that i'm done. I'm searching for a job (anyone wants to hire me? :) I usually collect recipes from zaar, since they're tested (by viewing the comments of the bakers)
