This crispy baked tofu is full of flavour thanks to garlic powder and black pepper.




  1. Slice the pressed tofu into thin strips and place in a bowl. Try to keep all the pieces as even as you can for best results. Alternatively, you can cut into cubes or triangles.
  2. Add the garlic powder, black pepper and soy sauce and toss to combine. If you have time, you can let it marinate for 30 minutes for extra flavour, but that’s optional.
  3. Lay the strips on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes, flip then continue cooking until puffy and crispy. The longer you bake it, the chewier it will be when it cools. When it’s starting to puff up, that’s usually a good indicator that it’s done.
