Tofu doesn’t have to be boring! You’ll love this flavorful Asian Baked Tofu recipe.
I make tofu at least once a week. Tofu is essentially a blank canvas which allows me to get creative in the kitchen. I love creating new sauces and marinades for tofu. The options are endless when it comes to tofu!
I’ve shared quite a few different tofu recipes on the blog over the years. Today, I am really excited to be sharing my new favorite Asian Baked Tofu recipe. I think that your family is really going to like this tofu recipe as much as mine!
Slices of tofu are baked in a sweet and tangy Asian ginger glaze. This glaze is a little sweet and sticky. The base of the glaze is maple syrup, rice vinegar, coconut aminos, and sesame oil. For aromatics, I like to add fresh grated ginger and garlic. Everything is better with a little garlic, right?
As the tofu bakes in the oven, it adsorbs all the wonderful flavors of the glaze. The Asian inspired glaze elevate basic tofu. No more boring tofu!
I like to serve slices of the Asian Baked Tofu over brown rice and roasted cauliflower or broccoli.
