Crispy Baked Tofu

Baking tofu in a marinade is a simple way to infuse it with flavor. Enjoy it with steamed veggies and cooked grains or as a snack.


Firm reduced fat tofu 1 Pound
Sauce 2 Tablespoon
Water/Unsalted vegetable broth 2 Tablespoon
Brown rice syrup/Liquid sweetener 2 Teaspoon
Balsamic vinegar 2 Teaspoon
Minced garlic 2 Teaspoon
Peeled and grated ginger/Ground ginger 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
Ground black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Cut the tofu into 4 or 8 equal slices and arrange them in a single, tightly packed layer in a 9-inch square or similar baking dish.

Combine the soy sauce, water, syrup, vinegar, garlic, ginger, and pepper in a small bowl. Pour evenly over the tofu and bake uncovered for 30 minutes.

Stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, leftover Baked Tofu will keep for up to 3 days.
