Baked Sesame Tofu

Baked Sesame Tofu

Print Recipe
Tofu is pretty plain and boring in its raw form…but it’s the perfect flavor sponge to soak up all sorts of seasonings! Its mild, earthy taste works especially well with savory, umami flavors, like sesame oil and salty soy sauce. Combine them in a simple marinade, and you can infuse their umami goodness into these baked sesame tofu cubes!
