Asian Inspired Baked Tofu by The Healthful Model

This Asian inspired baked tofu dish is simple to make and requires little preparation. It’s rich in plant-based protein and is equally delicious heated up the next day for lunch. It’s also perfectly appropriate for vegan/vegetarian and gluten free diets.


  • 2 12 oz packages organic tofu
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup low sodium tamari
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic (sautéed until golden)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or raw honey (I love the Trader Joe‘s raw honey)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 °F (175 °C).
  2. For the marinade – Combine sesame oil, tamari, ginger powder, dijon mustard, garlic, and maple syrup in a large bowl. 
  3. Slice tofu into medium-sized, rectangular pieces and place into the marinade.
  4. Allow the tofu to marinade for 15-30 minutes.
  5. Bake tofu for 20-30 minutes depending on desired texture.

Note: I served this last night with onion, garlic, spinach, and mushrooms lightly sautéed in organic olive oil and sea salt & plain steamed quinoa.
