Ingredients

Instructions

  • Start by pressing the tofu. Drain the water from the package. Place a paper towel on a plate, then place the towel on top of the paper towel. Put another layer of paper towel on top of the tofu, then place something heavy on top of the tofu. I like to do a few cookbooks or my tea kettle. Let sit for at least 15 minutes, longer if possible.
  • Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set it aside.
  • Remove the tofu from your press and cut the block into cubes. I usually do about 1" cubes.
  • Place the cubes in a bowl. Spray with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer the cubes onto the baking sheet. Make sure each cube is laying flat and has space on all four sides.
  • Bake on the center rack for 20 minutes. Flip the tofu and bake for another 15 - 20 minutes until the tofu is crispy.*
  • Serve immediately with your favorite dish.

Notes

* if you want to add flavor/sauces to your tofu, pour it onto the tofu at this stage. Stir it around and continue to cook.
