Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Mix vinegar, ketchup, peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, ground ginger, cayenne pepper, and black pepper together in a small, microwave-safe bowl.

  • Heat vinegar mixture in microwave oven until the peanut butter is softened, 10 to 15 seconds; stir mixture until smooth.

  • Put tofu into a large bowl. Pour sauce over the tofu and stir to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 30 minutes to a full day, stirring occasionally to assure tofu remains coated in sauce.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Spread tofu onto a baking sheet in a single layer.

  • Bake in preheated oven until slightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

If you like them a little crispier or browner, bake an additional 5 to 15 minutes.

The baked tofu can be eaten hot, cold, or at room-temperature.
