  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly oil a large baking sheet.
  2. Gently press tofu pieces to release as much water as possible. Arrange tofu on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Whisk soy sauce, agave nectar, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger together in a bowl until marinade is evenly combined. Brush half of the marinade over tofu pieces.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Flip tofu and brush remaining marinade over tofu. Sprinkle sesame seeds over tofu. Continue baking until tofu is crisp, about 30 minutes more. Transfer tofu to a wire rack using a spatula; cool.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute tamari for soy sauce and brown sugar for the agave, if desired.

This is hands down the best tofu recipe I've ever had. I don't like the taste of tofu but this recipe makes it so delicious. Make sure you line your baking sheet with aluminum foil tho because ...

My tofu turned out the perfect texture and had a nice glazed coating with a subtle flavor. Maybe a tad too subtle for me, so I might amp it up next time. But that's just a personal preference. (...

This is my go-to recipe for tofu, and my family eats a lot of tofu. I like the texture and crust that forms with this method, and it is super easy to use in a stir fry dish, add protein to a sa...

Five stars for this dish. I have used honey instead of agave syrup. My husband loved it as well! One of the best tofu recipes we made so far.

I didn't have any sesame oil on hand so I made this using peanut oil - then I made it again, and again. This is one of my favorite tofu recipes.

This is really, really good. The sauce gets thick and sticky and just tastes good. I used tamari sauce for the soy so it would be gluten free but otherwise, I didn't change a thing...you don't n...

Thanks to the reviewer who suggested putting foil on the sheet! Clean up would have been challenging.
