Crispy Baked Tofu Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 10 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 30 minutes


16 ounces Firm Tofu (450g)

2 Tbsp Cornstarch

2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast

1 tsp Garlic Powder

1 tsp Onion Powder

1/2 tsp Ground Ginger

1/2 tsp Salt

1/4 tsp Ground Black Pepper

1/2 Tbsp Sesame Oil


1Press your tofu, ideally using a tofu press, or place your tofu on a plate, with another plate on top of it and then place something heavy on top of that like a heavy pot or a stack of books. Let the tofu press for 30 minutes so it becomes as firm as possible.

2Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C)

3Cut your pressed tofu into cubes and place into a container with a lid.

4Add the cornstarch, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, onion powder, ground ginger, salt and ground black pepper to a bowl and mix together.

5Drizzle the sesame oil over the tofu and then put the lid on the container and rotate it a few times so that the oil is evenly spread.

6Add the cornstarch and seasonings mix to the tofu and then put the lid on again and rotate the bowl a few times so that the tofu is evenly coated with the spices.

7Spread the tofu cubes evenly on a parchment lined baking tray.

8Bake for 15 minutes and then flip the tofu cubes and bake for a further 15 minutes until deliciously crispy.
