  • Ready In

  1. Lay tofu cubes onto several layers of paper towel; top with more paper towel. Place something heavy onto the tofu to squeeze excess water from the tofu; let sit until the tofu is drained, 20 to 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  3. Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Toast sesame seeds in hot skillet until fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  4. Mix soy sauce, ginger, and sesame seeds together in a large pan. Marinate tofu in the soy sauce mixture until it absorbs some of the sauce, about 12 minutes per side.
  5. Spread marinated tofu onto the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake tofu in preheated oven for 15 minutes, flip, and continue baking until firm and heated through, about 15 minutes more.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can reserve the sesame seeds and simply sprinkle over the baked tofu if you prefer.

Yummy!! I added some fresh turmeric to the marinade. Keep the marinade to add after cooking. Thank you SlimCookins for the recipe.

Absolutely love it! This is really my first recipe cooking Tofu and now I am a big fan. Thank you!

Baked Tofu Haiku: "Love to bake tofu. Marinated mine longer. Brushed sauce halfway too." Mine came out way darker than those of the other recipe photographs, perhaps b/c I marinated it for 3 hrs...

It's tasty and easy to make. I saved this to my recipe box.
