“Tofu cubes are marinated and then baked in the oven. The tofu can be used as a hot or cold snack or used as salad topping. Don't forget the smoke flavoring, it really adds the special flavor.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly spray a non-stick baking sheet with oil.
  2. Slice tofu into 1/2-inch slices, and gently press excess water out of tofu. Cut sliced tofu into 1/2-inch cubes.
  3. In a bowl, stir together the soy sauce, maple syrup, ketchup, vinegar, and hot sauce. Stir in sesame seeds, garlic powder, black pepper, and liquid smoke. Gently stir tofu cubes into sauce. Cover, and marinate at least 5 minutes.
  4. Place the tofu on the baking sheet in a single layer. Bake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes. Turn tofu, and bake until the tofu turns golden brown, about 15 minutes more.

This is a GREAT recipe. I omitted the liquid smoke (before reading other reviews) because I didn't have any on hand. After reading other reviews, it sounds like this was probably a good thing. I wouldn't change a thing (other than omit liquid smoke) about this recipe. These bites are so tasty, both hot and cold, that I could see using them in various ways at least a couple of times a week (I like tofu!).

This is one of my favorite ways to prepare tofu. I've made this recipe many times and find that baking it for a minumum of 45 minutes produces a more textured tofu. I love the marinade as written and with a few variations, like adding powdered giger or honey instead of syrup, these little tofu bites are even more delicious! The marinade really bakes into the tofu so don't plan on a saucy dish, I usually pair these with a saucy veggie stir fry and rice, yum! What a perfect dinner!

I have just put together this marinade and I really like it! I did use half low sodium soy sauce and half regular soybean sauce. Chopped garlic bits instead of powder. Also, I started by putting in only a few drops of liquid smoke at a time and tasting to see my preference. I think you need the liquid smoke. Just in a smaller amount. I used extra sesame seeds and they are the toasted. When I put it in the oven, I am thinking of sifting a little cornstarch over the top, to give it a little crunch. This will be great with some broccoli. Thanks for an easy and yummy recipe! ***Update*** I am finding that there is no need for the cornstarch as the marinade cooks and clings to the tofu. Sort of but not really in a crunchy way. I also feel like the marinade loses some "punch" upon cooking. The picture posted must have extra sauce used. I would make this again, baking my tofu with the sesame seeds without the marinade. I would take the marinade and bring it to a quick almost boil on the stove and pour it over the top of the tofu about half way through the cooking time. Perhaps that would offer more flavor in the finished product. It was however, good cold before I cooked it!
