I had a picky 19 year-old try this and he gobbled it up, as did everybody else at the table. People were disappointed, but only because I didn't have enough.

  • Arrange tofu slices into a square baking dish in a single layer.

  • Stir water, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, and cornstarch together in a small saucepan; bring to a boil while stirring continually. Pour sesame oil into the boiling mixture while stirring to incorporate fully; remove from heat and pour over the tofu.

  • Marinate tofu for 15 minutes.

  • Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Cook sesame seeds in skillet until fragrant, about 5 minutes.

  • Bake tofu in preheated oven until it looks glazed, about 25 minutes. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onion.

Cook's Note:

If preparing tofu in advance, refrigerate overnight to marinate, rotating tofu occasionally to keep covered.
