Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time30 mins
- 1 T. Toasted sesame oil
- 2 T. Shoyu
- 3 t. Maple Syrup
- 2 t. Sriracha sauce or more if you like a bigger kick
- 1 t. Unseasoned rice vinegar
- 1 T. Fresh ginger root, grated
- 1 14 Oz. Super form tofu my favorite is Wildwood brand cut into about 24 sticks, see photos
- 2 T. Sesame seeds
Mix sesame oil, shoyu, maple syrup, Sriracha sauce, rice vinegar, and ginger in a 8 x 11 pan and add tofu. Toss tofu sticks so they are coated on all sides.
Marinate for at least 1 hour or all day if possible in the fridge. If you think of it, occasionally turn the tofu to marinate all sides more evenly.
When you are ready to cook the tofu, line a cookie sheet with a silicone baking sheet or parchment paper. Place tofu on tray and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven for 20 minutes or golden brown. Turn each piece of tofu over and brush more marinade on, bake for about 10 minutes more, or until golden.
Serve with remaining marinade for extra flavor. These are delicious with a peanut dipping sauce!
