"Tofu cubes are marinated and then baked in the oven. The tofu can be used as a hot or cold snack or used as salad topping. Don't forget the smoke flavoring, it really adds the special flavor."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly spray a non-stick baking sheet with oil.
  2. Slice tofu into 1/2-inch slices, and gently press excess water out of tofu. Cut sliced tofu into 1/2-inch cubes.
  3. In a bowl, stir together the soy sauce, maple syrup, ketchup, vinegar, and hot sauce. Stir in sesame seeds, garlic powder, black pepper, and liquid smoke. Gently stir tofu cubes into sauce. Cover, and marinate at least 5 minutes.
  4. Place the tofu on the baking sheet in a single layer. Bake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes. Turn tofu, and bake until the tofu turns golden brown, about 15 minutes more.

This is a GREAT recipe. I omitted the liquid smoke (before reading other reviews) because I didn't have any on hand. After reading other reviews, it sounds like this was probably a good thing. I...

Too much smoke flavor. 1/2 the soy sauce and double the sesame seeds. My son loved these. Would be great as an acompaniment to an Asian salad.

I thought this was pretty good! After reading reviews I doubled everything except the soy sauce, and I also omitted the liquid smoke (don't like it) and added 2 cloves minced garlic to the mari...

I liked these. THey are nice and low cal. The marinade sounded strange, but is really quite tasty, however I omitted the hickory smoke flavor. I feel it is really important that you dry out the...

Really good, we will be making this again and again!  I am always sure to really take a lot of time squeezing off the excess water when I prepare tofu.  It really helps with the texture and also...

These are so good! I must confess that I ate the entire batch for a snack the other night. Roasting the tofu is key here... the crispy edges are great. I wasn't crazy about the idea of adding...

I really enjoyed this recipe, but I think next time I'll either cut back the liquid smoke or omit it altogether. I found that flavour a bit overpowering. Thanks for the recipe!
