Let’s talk tofu. Are you a hater? Or, are you like me and actually like the stuff? One of my favorite ways to prepare tofu is baking it with a simple sauce. It’s easy and pretty tough to mess up.
Lately I’ve been making this Honey Sriracha Baked Tofu recipe. It’s sweet, spicy, salty and simple. Once you’ve baked the tofu you can eat it straight up or add it to a veggie bowl, salad or sandwich.
Honey Sriracha Baked Tofu Recipe
1 package (12-ounces) tub-style extra firm tofu
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons Sriracha sauce
2 teaspoons tamari (soy sauce)
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a shallow baking pan with parchment paper or foil.
Drain and rinse tofu. Press tofu brick to release excess water; pat dry. Slice tofu brick into 8 slices. Place tofu slices in a single layer in baking pan.
For sauce, stir together honey, Sriracha and tamari. Spoon and spread sauce over both sides of tofu slices. Bake tofu 20 to 25 minutes until sauce is absorbed and the edges begin to brown. Serve warm or cold. Store in the refrigerator.
Makes 4 servings (2 slices each)
Tip: There are many different styles of tofu. I prefer extra firm tub-style tofu…the kind soaking in water. I’ve found that silken tofu is very delicate and tends to fall apart.
