Vegan Crispy Oven Baked Tofu Ⓥ

  • 2-16 oz blocks of extra-firm tofu
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

  1. Drain & press tofu. You can just wrap the block of tofu in kitchen towels & lay it between pans with weights on top a cutting board on top to hold it down & press it well. Let the tofu press for 15-30 minutes.  Preheat the oven to 425°F in the meantime.
  2. Remove the weights & towels.  Cut the tofu into cubes. 
  3. Add the tofu cubes to a large mixing bowl & add the olive oil, tossing until evenly coated.  Add the cornstarch, nutritional yeast, salt, garlic powder, onion powder & pepper to the bowl & toss until evenly coated.
  4. Lay the coated tofu cubes on a silicone baking mat or a parchment-covered baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, flip them over to the other side & bake for another 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven & serve with your favorite sauce.
