This was by far the best tofu I’ve made. I’ve had a few stir-fry disasters where the tofu either burned at the bottom, or turned to mush, but this method prevents all that. Two other bloggers have done a fantastic job of capturing the whole process both here and here. I cut the tofu block into slices, and pat them dry with a paper towel. Then, I marinated the slices in soy sauce for about a half hour, and baked them on a cookie sheet coated with cooking spray for about 40 minutes at 400F, turning them halfway through. That’s it!
The pieces of baked tofu are firm and flavorful, and I know that not everyone is into tofu in the first place, but if it’s just a little fear that’s holding you back, give this a try!

I really like baked tofu — lately, I've just been brushing tofu with a little oil and baking it until crisp, then adding it to other dishes. I've also tried recipes where it is marinated in a blend of soy sauce, peanut butter, ginger etc, before baking — yum!

I bet there was dollop of catsup on your plate not in the picture !
Ha! That night I used extra soy sauce for dipping, but the next day I did use ketchup. They were both good.
