This easy baked tofu is something that I meal prep every single week. I add to it to so many different kinds of Buddha bowls, or any other kind of simple lunch or dinner meals. It’s the perfect recipe to make in bulk on a Sunday, and combine it with some carbs and veggies to have your meals prepared for the whole week. I can never get sick of it because there are so many ways to enjoy it!

How to make your easy baked tofu

  • Start by draining the excess water from your tofu. Use a kitchen towel or paper towel to pat the tofu down and get rid of extra moisture.
  • Slice the tofu into small cubes. The size of these is up to you.
  • In a bowl, add the corn starch, salt, garlic powder, and pepper and mix them well.
  • Take each tofu cube and cover it in the corn starch mixture. Then line it on a baking sheet.
  • Once all of the tofu cubes are ready, bake the tofu for 20 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit / 232 degrees Celsius.
  • After 20 minutes, take out the tofu and dip each cube into whatever sauce you like that pairs well with your meal. I was making a Thai inspired Buddha bowl, so I covered my tofu in Thai peanut sauce. If you don’t want any additional flavor, you can totally skip this step.
  • Once you have added the sauce or dip to your tofu, put them back on the baking sheet and bake for another 20 minutes.
  • Add them to the rest of your meal and enjoy!
