Soy-Sesame Baked Tofu

"Only 3 ingredients! This is the first time I have tried making baked tofu, and it's pretty good. I just made up this combo of flavors to put in a Thai stir-fry, but you can probably use any type of marinade, and you can use baked tofu for sushi rolls, soups, salads, or just as a snack!"

Ready In:




  • Turn the tofu block on its side, and slice it into slices about 1/4 inch thick (you should get 4 slices). Put several layers of paper towels on each side, and make sure you extract as much moisture as you can.
  • Mix the soy sauce and sesame oil in a small bowl.
  • Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil. Lay the slices of tofu on the baking sheet, being careful so that they don't tear.
  • Brush the soy sauce and sesame oil on both sides of each piece of tofu, being careful to make sure they don't tear too bad when you turn them (if they do a little, it's ok). Use all the marinade between all 4 pieces of tofu.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Let the tofu sit and absorb the marinade while the oven preheats.
  • Bake for 40 minutes, turning once with a wide spatula halfway through the baking time.

I am an active lady, and I am not the top chef in the world, but I can hold my own. I love making things that remind me of when I was little, I love trying out new recipes, and I love learning new things to cook. Most of the recipes I post are recipes I loved that I found online, but that I have tweaked just a bit. I do have some family recipes on here too. I love to bake, probably more than anything else in the kitchen. I love to bike ride. I like to read, travel, kayak (I've only been twice, but I loved it), hike, camp, basically any outdoorsy/active stuff.?
