Baked Tofu - Eating Bird Food

Baked Tofu

**Oh and the reason this particular tofu looks speckled is because I bought an herbed variety from a local health food store.


I take one block of firm tofu and wrap it with paper towels and a hand towel and sit a book on it to get the moisture out.

I cut the block into 6-8  slices (about a quarter to half an inch thick), marinate those in soy sauce/shoyu for 15 minutes to a couple hours, depending on how much time I have. I mix up some other seasonings.. whatever I have around –

  • sesame oil
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • 5 spice seasoning
  • nutritional yeast

These ingredients combined make a rub that I put on the tofu. You can seriously put any spice you would like on it.

Lastly I bake it on 375-400 for 20-30 minutes. I usually flip it once through the process and just keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t burn.

I like to make slices of baked tofu on Sunday night to have with dinner and then save the rest for heating up (or eating cold) throughout the week for sandwiches, salads, or just to eat plain. I have to say that Gliding Calm was the inspiration for me to try baking tofu and my method is pretty similar to hers. YUM!!


  1. Just wanted to let you know that your Baked Tofu inspired my recent recipe experiment. I think it’s going to become a new favorite of mine! Thanks! =)
