Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or greased aluminum foil.

  • Drain and rinse the block of tofu. To remove excess moisture, wrap in a couple of layers of paper towels and set on a rimmed dinner plate. Place another plate on top and weigh it down with something heavy, like a can of soup or a skillet. Let sit 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine maple syrup, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, ginger, scallion and sesame seeds in a shallow dish.

  • Cut the tofu into rectangles about ½ inch thick and 2 inches long. Place in the dish with the maple syrup mixture. Make sure each side of the tofu is coated with marinade and let sit for 10 minutes.

  • Lay tofu pieces in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and pour remaining marinade evenly on top. Bake for 30-40 minutes, turning the pieces every 10 minutes or so, until well browned.
