  • Summary

    Packaged baked tofu is tasty and not all that expensive, but homemade baked tofu is even better. The trick to this chewy, savory transformation of bland white tofu is to make sure it’s well pressed and to let it marinate for plenty of time. These baked tofu slices are so flavorful that you can serve them as a side dish, add them to the dinner plate for extra protein, or use them to make sandwiches on toast or rolls along with vegan mayonnaise and/or mustard and sprouts or dark green lettuce. They also make a fantastic addition to wraps.

    Ingredients

    • One (14- to 16- ounce) tub firm or extra- firm tofu (see Note)
    • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium natural soy sauce
    • 1/4 cup white wine, cooking sherry, vegetable broth, or water
    • 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
    • 1 tablespoon agave nectar or other liquid sweetener
    • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar or white wine vinegar
    • 1 to 2 cloves garlic, crushed or minced (optional)
    • 1 teaspoon grated fresh or jarred ginger, or more to taste
    • Fresh or dried thyme leaves (either regular or lemon thyme) or fresh or dried oregano leaves to taste (optional)
