Oven Roasted Tofu

Oven Roasted Tofu

Slow roasting tofu makes it delightfully rich and sweet in flavor and gives it firm but tender texture. You can serve this hot or warm with your favorite sauce, or cool it and use it in salads and sandwiches. Watch our how-to video.

  • 2 (14-ounce) packages firm tofu
  • 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried or 1 tablespoon fresh chopped thyme, oregano or parsley

Drain tofu and place on a plate. Cover with another plate and weight the top with a food can or other object of about 1 pound. Let stand 20 to 30 minutes to extract excess liquid. Pour off liquid and cut tofu into 3/4 -inch-thick slices. Place slices in a single layer in a shallow dish. In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard and herbs. Pour mixture over the tofu and let marinate 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove tofu from the marinade and place on the baking sheet. Bake until firm and lightly browned, about 1 hour.
