Chili Lime Baked Tofu

About This Recipe:

It’s safe to say that many people are skeptical of tofu because of it’s “bland” flavor, but this recipe might change their minds! This chili lime sauce adds a lot of great flavor and tang to the tofu, and the tofu absorbs it like a sponge. I like to eat this with jasmine rice and Asian slaw, using the same dressing as the tofu. This recipe is super healthy, vegan, and a great weekday dinner idea.


Ingredients (4 servings)
-12 oz extra firm tofu (1 package)

Chili lime sauce:
-2 limes, juiced
-2 tbls soy sauce
-1 tbl rice wine vinegar
-2 tsps chili paste
-2 tsps sugar
-2 tbls warm water

Instructions (35 minutes)
1. Take the tofu and gently squeeze out as much liquid as possible (without breaking it.) Pat dry with paper towels.
2. Cut the tofu into rectangles that are 1/4- 1/2 inch thick.
3. Stir together all of the sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
4. Arrange the tofu on a lined baking sheet. Baste with the sauce and bake at 425 degrees F for 25 minutes. Reserve the rest of the sauce to use as a dipping sauce.
