Honey Garlic Tofu Bites
Only 5 ingredients for a quick and tasty weeknight protein!
- 1 lb pressed tofu 1 package, see notes
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- black pepper freshly ground, to taste
- green onions sliced, to garnish
- toasted sesame seeds to garnish
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Dry off your tofu with a paper towel and cut into 1/2 inch cubes. Toss with the cornstarch and arrange the tofu on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Bake for 30-45 minutes – midway through, flip the tofu cubes.
When you have just 5 minutes left on the baking time (at that point your tofu should be a light golden brown) start the sauce. In a small frying pan, heat up honey, soy and garlic over medium heat until bubbly and thick. Taste and season with freshly ground pepper.
Remove the tofu from the oven and toss in the sauce. Garnish with sliced green onions and toasted sesame seeds. Enjoy hot!
You can substitute regular medium or firm tofu, just cut it and place it on clean paper towels, flipping every so often until it removes most of the excess moisture.
