  • 14 oz. extra-firm tofu
  • 1/4 cup tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp. brown sugar (or 3 Tbsp. maple syrup)
  • 1/3 cup vegetable broth or water
  • 2 tsp. rice vinegar
  • 1-2 cloves garlic (minced)

  • Brown rice, quinoa, sliced green onions, sesame seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 375. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet.
  2. Gently squeeze some of the excess liquid from the tofu. (I place mine between a couple kitchen towels and lightly press down for about 15 seconds.)
  3. Cut tofu into about 3/4-inch cubes and place in single file on baking sheet.
  4. Bake tofu 25-30 minutes, flipping/stirring halfway through.
  5. While tofu is baking, place all teriyaki ingredients in a bowl and whisk well to combine.
  6. When there’s about 5-10 minutes baking time remaining for the tofu, start warming the teriyaki sauce.
  7. Whisk teriyaki sauce once more and add to skillet over med-high heat. Stir occasionally with a spatula.
  8. When tofu is done, carefully add baked cubes to skillet with teriyaki sauce.
  9. Stir frequently to coat the tofu cubes until sauce thickens (about 5-6 minutes).
  10. Serve as is, or with rice, quinoa, in veggie bowls, with stir-fry, etc.
