  • 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.

Notes

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.
