Baked Tofu Recipes

By

Check out these great marinated and baked tofu recipes. Baked tofu is low-fat and low-carb, vegetarian and vegan. You can eat baked tofu as it is, or add it to salads, pastas or vegetarian stir-fries. If you like baked tofu, try these flavorful marinated tofu recipes.

1. Baked Tofu "Fish" Sticks

Adding lemon juice and seaweed creates a fishy flavor to a breaded and baked tofu. Dip these in tartar sauce for an even fishier flavor. Though the recipe calls for nori seaweed, any kind will do, so try using dulse or kelp, or whatever you can find in your grocery store. For an extra "fishy" dish, serve these tofu sticks with a homemade vegan tartar sauce.

2. Sesame Ginger Baked Tofu Recipe

Sesame Ginger baked tofu is an easy baked tofu recipe, inspired by the flavors of Asia. Simply whisk up a marinade and bake! Because this baked tofu recipe is so easy, it's a good one to pair with a vegetarian noodle recipe or to top off a vegetable stir-fry for a simple and healthy vegetarian dinner.

3. Sweet and Spicy Tofu Nuggets

These little tofu nuggets are baked in a sweet and spicy sauce for a delectable dish. If you like baked tofu or barbecue tofu, try this easy sweet and spicy baked tofu recipe. Go ahead and make a double batch. They're just that good (and easy to make, too!).

4. Pesto Breaded Tofu Cutlets

A fresh basil and Parmesan cheese breading lightly coats these tofu cutlets, which can be baked, or, if you're not concerned about a bit of added fat, they work well pan-fried in a bit of oil as well. Try serving them topped with a bit of extra pesto, or drizzled with a gourmet flavored olive oil.

5. Cornmeal Breaded Tofu

Tofu is coated in cornmeal and a few spices then baked until crispy. Like most breaded and baked tofu recipes, you can also pan-fry this tofu in a bit of neutral flavored oil, such as canola or safflower oil. Don't forget a bit of ketchup, ranch dressing or barbecue sauce to dip it in!

6. Lemon Basil Baked Tofu

A saucy baked tofu with lemon, Dijon mustard with basil and a bit of thyme for flavor. A reviewer gave this lemon baked tofu recipes five out of five stars and said, "Very flavorful, I devoured half the block right out of the oven." Hmm, maybe you should make a double batch, because it's just that good!

7. Easy Barbecue Baked Tofu

The sugar in barbecue sauce is really what makes this method (its so easy its hardly a recipe!) work so well, so make sure you use a barbecue sauce with some added sweetener. I like to use a good quality Texas style barbecue sauce and serve on sourdough bread to make barbecue tofu sandwiches! If you're new to cooking with tofu or have never made baked tofu before, this is a great recipe to try because it is so easy and completely foolproof.

8. Baked Tofu "Chicken Nuggets"

Three different reviewers have all given these breaded tofu "chicken nuggets" five out of five stars and agree they're very tasty and similar to chicken nuggets, whether baked or fried.

9. Chinese 5-Spice Baked Tofu

Chinese five spice is a unique taste that certainly isn't for everyone. If you have "undeveloped" Western taste-buds, you may want to cut the amount of five-spice required in half, but, if you like Chinese 5-spice, or authentic Asian food, you'll love this easy baked tofu recipe.

10. Miso Glazed Baked Tofu

A salty and savory tofu dish broiled in the oven to create a crispy golden brown crust. If you like miso, this is a great recipe to try. Delicious on its own or in vegetarian sandwiches or wraps.
