To Baked (Island Soyaki) Tofu

I’ve had a package of tofu sitting in the back of my fridge for a while and tonight I decided that I better make something with it. I found this super simple recipe for baked tofu in my Happy Herbivore cookbook (you can find Lindsay’s, the writer behind Happy Herbivore, recipes online there) and thought now is just a good time as any.

It recommended marinating in personal choice of marinade so I chose Trader Joe’s Island Soyaki and a wise choice it was.

If you are uneasy about cooking tofu then try this recipe for a qui

ck delicious meal that will help you get comfortable with preparing and eating tofu!


1 lb. extra firm tofu

Couple Tbsp. of marinade of choice


Preheat oven to 350. Line baking shed with parchment paper and set aside.

Cut tofu into 8-10 strips (I had 12 and this worked too).

Brush both sides of the tofu with marinade and put on baking sheet.

Bake for 8 minutes. Flip and bake for another 8 minutes, or until the tofu is golden brown and slightly crisp on the outside but tender on the inside.

Plate with some delicious veggies (I did broccoli) and maybe a whole grain if you have on hand and its an easy and tasty dinner!

Cheers n
