Calories: 134kcal


  • 1 block Tofu, extra firm, prepared with nigari
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger, ground
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Place a clean, absorbent dish towel on a plate. Drain the tofu, and cut into 2-3 large slabs. Place the slabs on the towel. Drape a second towel on top of the tofu, and place a heavy cutting board on top, to press the remaining liquid out. Let rest for 20-30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 400 F. (If you have a convection option on your oven, preheat the convection setting to 375 F.)
  • Cut tofu into cubes, and place in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, and toss lightly.
  • Add corn starch, ginger, garlic, and salt to the cubes, and gently toss until coated.
  • Spread the cubes evenly on a light-colored cookie sheet, and bake 15 minutes. Turn the cubes, and cook an additional 15 minutes, or until the tofu is crispy and golden-brown. Serve immediately with rice, noodles, and/or your favorite stir-fried veggies.

Recipe awfly incomplete –
1TBS of oil is not near enough. You don’t say to oil the pan, yet you expect to flip tofu or even get out of pan. And the seasoning too little for any flavor. Cooking time is way to long unless you want dehydrated tofu.
