Crispy Baked Tofu

These crispy baked tofu is an easy, delicious, vegan recipe which my little boy has come to love. You can make a big batch of the tofu and even play around with different sauces. So far, our favorite is the teriyaki glaze which only needs a few ingredients.

Pair this with brown rice and steamed broccolis for a complete healthylicious meal.

Crispy baked tofu


1 pack extra firm tofu (silken tofu won’t work with this recipe)

1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce

1 tbsp corn flour or arrowroot starch (for gluten-free)

1/2 tsp garlic powder

Salt & pepper

2-3 tbsps of teriyaki sauce

Sesame seeds


Take tofu out of its packaging then place on a plate with tea towel or paper towel underneath. Place another towel over it and a heavy dish or casserole on top. This presses down the tofu and squeezes out all the moisture. Let it sit for 15-20mins.

Once tofu is ready, cut it into small cubes, ideally of the same size. In a bowl, mix all the other ingredients then gently toss the tofu in it.

In a lined baking tray, arrange the tofu on a single layer. Bake at 400deg for 25-30 mins, flipping halfway through.

Once cooked, transfer to a large bowl and toss in your favorite teriayi sauce to coat. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Enjoy!

*if not baking it, you can also shallow-fry it on a pan.
