  1. 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.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  3. Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Toast sesame seeds in hot skillet until fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  4. 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.
  5. Spread marinated tofu onto the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake tofu in preheated oven for 15 minutes, flip, and continue baking until firm and heated through, about 15 minutes more.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can reserve the sesame seeds and simply sprinkle over the baked tofu if you prefer.

Yummy!! I added some fresh turmeric to the marinade. Keep the marinade to add after cooking. Thank you SlimCookins for the recipe.

This tofu is yummy, but I can only eat it in small quantities with a veggie skillet or it's too sweet for me. I also had trouble draining the tofu (pesky stuff!). Thanks for the recipe!

Easy and basic. On its own, very salty, but mixed in with rice and broccoli, it’s very tasty. I agree with the suggestion made in another review to use low sodium soy sauce.

This is excellent! Even my non-vegetarian family members liked it. But I would definitely make sure to get low sodium soy sauce. I used regular, as it's what I had, and it was salty. Paired with...
