Baked Tofu marinated in a delicious, rich and tamari sauce. In this recipe, I use firm tofu and made a simple and super quick sauce that you’re sure to love. Served with a green salad. You will LOVE it!
Mix the tamari, olive oil, onion powder, garlic powder and black pepper.
Place the tofu slices in a bowl and cover with the sauce. Rest for at least 1 hour.
Preheat the oven at 356 Fahrenheit.
Place the slices into a pan and cover with the remaining sauce. Bake until golden from both sides.
Serve with a green salad.
Prior to using tofu, it is important to press out as much liquid as possible. This allows the tofu to better absorb other flavors from marinades or sauces.
To do this, wrap the tofu in a towel and place in a colander. Lay something somewhat heavy, such as a plate, on top and leave it for 20 minutes to remove any excess water.
Another way to remove excess water is to freeze and defrost it. Note that this method of freezing results in a more porous, “meatier” texture that is good if you want to use tofu as cutlets or when you want a chewy texture.
To make the perfect Baked Tofu, you have to make sure that you season it very well. Leave it to rest for at least 1 hour.
