-Tasty Vegan Garlic Tofu-

Sharing is caring!

Tofu guys, you either love it or you hate it. There isn’t much in the middle. I am a tofu lover but the first time I tried it I thought it was absolutely disgusting. If it is not cooked properly then forget it. This easy tasty vegan garlic tofu may change your mind if you are on the fence on tofu.

It’s is full of flavor and a quick delicious dinner. My family minus the small picky child love when this meal is on the dinner plate.

I do like to use a tofu press with this recipe. A tofu press just presses all that water that was sitting in the tofu out so it can absorb other flavors. I use this one that I got Amazon years ago, but you could use some heavy books if you don’t want to buy another gadget.

I serve this with rice. The delicious garlic and herb flavors pair nicely with the rice and some roasted vegetables.

What do you need for this tasty vegan garlic tofu recipe?

  • 14 oz extra firm tofu
  • corn starch
  • oil
  • vegan butter
  • salt + pepper
  • brown sugar
  • apple cider vinegar
  • garlic
  • dried parsley

How do you make it?

Start by pressing your tofu. Either with a tofu press or with plates and some heavy books. Try to press the most water out that you can for about 15- 20 minutes.

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Get a baking sheet and spray with cooking spray, set aside.

When the tofu is done being pressed take it and either cut it into bite-sized pieces or break it up with your hands. Sprinkle the tofu with 2 TB corn starch and carefully mix to coat the tofu.

Place the tofu on the prepared baking sheet and bake in the oven for 20 minutes, flipping halfway through to ensure even browning.

While the tofu is cooking make your sauce. Mix all your sauce ingredients and stir until combined.

After the tofu has baked for 20 minutes carefully pour the sauce on the tofu and stir ( the pan will be extremely hot so be careful) bake for an additional 2 minutes.

Serve with rice.
