Instructions Checklist
  • Lay tofu cubes onto several layers of paper towel; top with more paper towel. Place something heavy onto the tofu to squeeze excess water from the tofu; let sit until the tofu is drained, 20 to 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.

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

  • Mix soy sauce, ginger, and sesame seeds together in a large pan. Marinate tofu in the soy sauce mixture until it absorbs some of the sauce, about 12 minutes per side.

  • Spread marinated tofu onto the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake tofu in preheated oven for 15 minutes, flip, and continue baking until firm and heated through, about 15 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

You can reserve the sesame seeds and simply sprinkle over the baked tofu if you prefer.
