Crispy Baked Peanut Tofu [Vegan]





  • 12 ounces organic extra-firm tofu
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter (or almond butter, sunbutter, etc.)
  • 3 tablespoons organic gluten-free tamari
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1- inch fresh ginger grated
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce (or more!)
  • 3 tablespoons water


  1. Press the tofu to get as much water out as possible. Cut into 1-inch cubes.
  2. Mix the remaining ingredients in a shallow bowl. Dump in the tofu cubes and toss to completely coat with the sauce. Cover the bowl and place in the fridge to marinate for 1 hour or longer. (Please don’t skip this step! Overnight is even better.)
  3. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Spread the marinated tofu on the lined baking sheet along with other vegetables of choice (I love sweet potato, squash, zucchini, and broccoli). Bake for 25-30 minutes until it gets crispy around the edges. Enjoy!
