Crispy Baked Sesame Tofu

Crispy baked tofu is one of my favourite things to add to any meal or simply just straight up snack on.  Serve upon a bed of noodles with some token greens.  A little sauce goes a long way as well as that final sprinkling of sesame seeds.

How to Make it

  2. Place tofu in a bowL, cover with the tamari or soy sauce, the olive or sesame oil, and then add in the starch.
  3. Place on a baking tray and bake for 25 minutes, tossing halfway through.

  6. Once the tofu is cooked, add your sauce to a pan.  Allow to heat through for just a minute or two before adding in the tofu and tossing to coat.
