  • Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Keep hot.

  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove tofu from marinade, place on a baking sheet. Reserve marinade.

  • Toast the sesame seeds by placing them in a dry skillet over medium heat. Stir seeds constantly until lightly toasted and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Immediately remove toasted seeds from pan to prevent burning. Reserve.

  • Bake the tofu in the preheated oven until hot and cooked to your liking, approximately 8 minutes. Drizzle tofu with remaining marinade.

  • Divide rice between 2 bowls, top with baked tofu, drizzle with honey, and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.

Perfect - I was looking for a simple tofu marinade and this worked just great. Plus I had never baked tofu in the oven before and I loved it - I think I will always cook it this way! Thank you so much this was great. I had to make some changes b/c I didn't have all the ingredients and I added some veggies - but I will definitely try this one as is when I get more honey - Yum!

The tofu absorbed too much marinade and it was very salty. Our family prefers a crispier tofu and this was quite soggy after being baked. Not what we were looking for. Read More

mmm this was so good! i only let mine marinate for a few minutes because of time and i only drizzled about one spoonful of remaining marinade into the rice. the honey balances it out perfectly. i also used brown rice instead of basmati and added brussels sprouts. Read More

I use low-sodium soy sauce or you can dilute the soy with water - half and half ratio as one other reviewer suggested. If you don't like the 'mushy' texture this can be remedied by sliding it under the broiler for just a few minutes. Great simple tasty recipe that can be jazzed up by adding extra veggies or even seafood or meat of choice if you don't want a vegan version. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Definitely freeze the tofu and thaw before cooking this. Also be sure to pat/squeeze the excess fluid out of the tofu before cooking. Otherwise it's a lot like eating a warm wet sponge! Read More

I really liked this recipe. I used half the soy sauce and replaced it with water. Also I drizzled it with agave nectar. I usually prefer the nectar over honey. Read More

I would have to agree with Jessica - the tofu did turn out very mushy. Doubling the marinade and only marinating the tofu for an hour or so may have done the trick. Personally I wasn't too thrilled with the overall flavor. I thought it turned out a bit boring and not tasty at all. Won't be making this again. Read More

Very good! I used a little more honey and I would recommend doubling the sauce. Read More

I liked this very much and my husband liked it even more. I made a mistake though of not making sure all the slices of tofu are completely submerged in the marinade. The slices that were submerged all the way tasted so much better than the slices that had only some of the marinade on it. So I think I will quadruple this recipe next time. Read More
