This recipe is GOOD! I definitely plan on adding this to the regular rotation of meals. The technique for cooking the tofu is healthier than pan frying, and yeilds great results. I was inspired to make this recipe I found on I used less garlic, and doubled the amount of sauce, because I wanted the sauce to flavour the brown rice and broccoli I made as well.

Crispy Oven Baked Honey Soy Tofu
Write a review
  1. 1 package firm tofu
  2. 1 tablespoon cornstarch/cornflour
  3. 4 tablespoons honey
  4. 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  5. 1 clove garlic, minced
  6. freshly ground pepper, to taste
  7. sliced green onions and toasted sesame seeds, to garnish
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C/Gas 6. Place the tofu on 2-3 sheets of paper towel. Cover with another 2-3 sheets. Place a baking pan or fry pan on top of the tofu to help drain out the liquid. Change the towels once, and leave for about 20 minutes. Blot the tofu with a final towel and cut into 1/2 inch cubes. Toss with the cornstarch and arrange the tofu on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 30-45 minutes – midway through, flip the tofu cubes.
  2. When you have just 5 minutes left on the baking time (at that point your tofu should be a light golden brown) start the sauce. In a small frying pan, heat up honey, soy and garlic over medium heat until bubbly and thick. Taste and season with freshly ground pepper.
  3. Remove the tofu from the oven and toss in the sauce. Garnish with sliced green onions and toasted sesame seeds.
  1. Serve with stir fried broccoli and brown rice.
