"Marinate tofu in a mix of rice vinegar, peanut butter, ketchup, garlic, and soy sauce, and discover that tofu really can be tasty! I've tried this recipe by first freezing and defrosting the tofu; it creates a nice texture."

  1. Mix vinegar, ketchup, peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, ground ginger, cayenne pepper, and black pepper together in a small, microwave-safe bowl.
  2. Heat vinegar mixture in microwave oven until the peanut butter is softened, 10 to 15 seconds; stir mixture until smooth.
  3. Put tofu into a large bowl. Pour sauce over the tofu and stir to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes to a full day, stirring occasionally to assure tofu remains coated in sauce.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  5. Spread tofu onto a baking sheet in a single layer.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until slightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • If you like them a little crispier or browner, bake an additional 5 to 15 minutes.
  • The baked tofu can be eaten hot, cold, or at room-temperature.
