Ingredients

    1 block (14 oz.) extra firm tofu
    3 T Tamari (or use low-sodium soy sauce)
    1/2 tsp. sesame oil
    olive oil, for spraying baking sheet
    optional: sliced green onions and /or black sesame seeds for garnish

Directions

Cut tofu in half crosswise. Blot each piece on both sides with papers towels, pressing down to remove as much liquid as you can. (You don't have to do this as carefully as when cooking tofu with a quicker method, but the wetter the tofu the longer you'll have to bake it.)

Turn oven on and set to 350 F. Whisk together the sesame oil and Tamari in a small bowl, then use pastry brush to brush both sides of the tofu pieces generously with the mixture. Let tofu marinate in the soy-sesame mixture for 5-10 minutes while the oven heats.

Spray a non-stick baking sheet with olive oil or non-stick spray and place tofu slices on sheet. Bake about one hour, not turning, but brushing with the soy-sesame mixture several times, until the glaze is all gone. It's done when the tofu feels firm to the touch, and looks glazed and nicely browned. I cooked my tofu about 70 minutes, using a toaster oven.
