Sesame Baked Tofu

Serve this easy tofu dish with some brown rice or quinoa and a veggie on the side.  (Pictured here with Grilled Cabbage.)

  • 1 package firm or extra firm tofu (14 oz or so)
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 Tbsp miso
  • 2 Tbsp tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp (toasted) sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2″ slice of ginger, minced (about 1 Tbsp)
  • 1/2 onion, minced (about 1/3 cup)
  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Press tofu until most water has drained.  Carefully slice tofu into 4 layers.

In a measuring cup, combine the miso and water and whisk until miso is dissolved.  Add tamari, vinegar, sesame oil, olive oil, ginger, onion, and sesame seeds.  Whisk.

In a glass 9×9 baking pan, pour a little of the mixture in the bottom of the pan.  Arrange the four slices of tofu in the pan.  Cover the tofu with the remaining mixture.  Bake uncovered for 40 minutes.

Serve with brown rice and a veggie on the side.

Chef’s Note:  I use a “chopper machine” as shown below for mincing the ginger and onion.
