Recipe By: Madeline
Prep: 10 minutesCook: 25 minutesTotal: 1 hour 5 minutes
Servings: 4 servings 1x


  • 1lb extra firm tofu
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (or tamari or coconut aminos)
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1.5 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes (optional)


  1. Open and drain tofu. Press tofu on a tofu press or wrap in a clean tea towel and place until a heavy object. Press the extra moisture out for 10 minutes.
  2. Cut tofu into 1/4inch thick rectangles and lay on a large flat surface with a lip, like a 9×13 baking pan. Whisk together soy sauce, rice vinegar, maple syrup, sesame oil, ginger, garlic and chili flakes.
  3. Pour half marinade over tofu. Flip and pour on other half. Let the tofu sit in marinade for 30 minutes to soak up as much marinade as possible.
  4. Preheat oven to 425F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove tofu from marinade and arrange on the baking sheet with space between each piece.
  5. Bake at 425F for 25 minutes. Allow to cool slightly and enjoy!


  • Serve warm or chilled
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week
  • If you have excess marinade, toss veggies in the marinade and bake on the sheet pan with the tofu
