Baked Tofu (with Sesame Seeds)

Baked Tofu (with Sesame Seeds)

This super easy vegan baked tofu recipe is nutritious, delicious and packed with protein!  I love this recipe because you cannot mess it up, LOL. Simply marinate the tofu and bake it. It doesn’t get easier than this! 

Sometimes I press the tofu and freeze before I marinate. Freezing changes the tofu’s texture to make it extra chewy, which I like.

You don’t have to watch the tofu while it’s baking, so you can prepare the rest of the meal. This baked tofu recipe is truly one of the easiest recipes I prepare. Enjoy!
