Directions

  1. Combine the soy sauce and ginger in a small bowl. Add tofu slices; cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Keep hot.
  3. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove tofu from marinade, place on a baking sheet. Reserve marinade.
  4. Toast the sesame seeds by placing them in a dry skillet over medium heat. Stir seeds constantly until lightly toasted and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Immediately remove toasted seeds from pan to prevent burning. Reserve.
  5. Bake the tofu in the preheated oven until hot and cooked to your liking, approximately 8 minutes. Drizzle tofu with remaining marinade.
  6. Divide rice between 2 bowls, top with baked tofu, drizzle with honey, and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.

Perfect - I was looking for a simple tofu marinade and this worked just great. Plus, I had never baked tofu in the oven before and I loved it - I think I will always cook it this way! Thank you so much this was great. I had to make some changes b/c I didn't have all the ingredients and I added some veggies - but I will definitely try this one as is when I get more honey - Yum!

The tofu absorbed too much marinade and it was very salty. Our family prefers a crispier tofu and this was quite soggy after being baked. Not what we were looking for.

mmm this was so good! i only let mine marinate for a few minutes because of time, and i only drizzled about one spoonful of remaining marinade into the rice. the honey balances it out perfectly. i also used brown rice instead of basmati and added brussels sprouts.
