Sweet Baked Tofu

I was in the mood for a new tofu dish tonight…  Originally I planned on making this, but changed it up for something new (modified a bit).  Thumbs up all around.

I made up this side dish to go with it.  Serve with a grain of your choice.  This made 3 large servings.  (Also – try as a topping on a green salad!!)


  • 1 package extra firm tofu (mine was 14 – 19 oz)
  • 1/4 reduced sodium tamari
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp hot sauce, or to taste
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • a bit of olive oil

Press the tofu well to get rid of as much water as possible.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium-large bowl, combine tamari, maple syrup, ketchup, apple cider vinegar, hot sauce, sesame seeds, garlic powder, and black pepper.  Whisk to combine.

Drizzle a bit of olive oil on a glass 9×9 baking dish and spread to coat.

Once you’ve gotten quite a bit of water out of the tofu, cut into 1/2″ cubes.  Put into the bowl with the sauce.  Toss with a spoon to fully coat all tofu pieces.  Pour into the prepared glass pan.  Bake 35 minutes, stirring/flipping every 10 – 15 minutes.
