Easy to prepare for lunch packs when going to school or work, tofu is a good source of high quality plant protein. Even better, it’s zero cholesterol! You can add it to salads, in a sandwich, or white rice and veggies.


Makes 2 1/4 cups or 4 to 6 servings



Two 300-gram blocks of firm tofu, rinsed and drained

2 tbsp sesame oil or other vegetable oil

2 tbsp soy sauce or Bragg’s liquid aminos

1 tsp muscovado or coconut sugar, optional

1 tsp garlic powder

Black pepper



  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F / 200 C. Line a baking sheet with non-stick baking / parchment paper.
  2. Chop the tofu into 3/4 to 1 inch cubes.
  3. In a mixing bowl, mix the oil, soy sauce, and sugar together. Add the tofu cubes and mix well to coat. Sprinkle in the garlic powder and pepper and mix again.
  4. Transfer the tofu to the baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, mixing halfway through.
