Makes 2 cups
1 14-oz package firm tofu, drained and pressed
½ cup Ginger Sesame Soy Sauce

- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Cut the tofu into two slabs lengthwise. Then, cut each slab into four to five strips and then cut each strip into four to five bite-sized cubes.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the tofu and the Ginger Sesame Soy Sauce. Marinate for at least 20 minutes.
- Drain the tofu and reserve the marinade. Place the tofu on a baking sheet lined with a silpat mat or parchment paper. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Bake for 10 minutes, flip and bake for an additional 10 minutes (or longer, depending on how crispy you like it). Remove from the oven and drizzle with the reserved Ginger Sesame Soy Sauce.
Soy Allergy: Use a non soy tempeh, seitan or chickpeas.
Spoiler Alert: Ginger Sesame Baked Tofu will stay fresh in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for a week.
