  • 2 blocks of Tofu, extra firm
  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 3 Tbsp Tamari
  • Sprinkle of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C.
  2. Press whole tofu blocks between paper towels or clean dishcloth, with a weight on top (a few heavy books should do the trick!) to release excess liquid for at least 10 minutes. This will release any excess water. Slice into planks and place on a baking tray sprayed with oil.
  3. Mix oil, tamari, and salt in a bowl and brush over tofu planks. Flip and repeat on the other side.
  4. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes and flip, cook for another 20-25 minutes.
  5. Move to a plate and serve up, or cool and refrigerate and save for another recipe!
