Ok, Baked Green Onion Tofu is a big-time favorite of mine. I love tofu. If I could only have one food for the rest of my life, it would be a toss-up between tofu and cashews. And only because cashews make a slightly better base for ice cream and cheese. Although as I’m saying this, I might just have to figure out how to make tofu work there, too.
There was a long stretch when the kids were really young, meals were impossible, and I made the same thing over and over out of survival instinct. Baked Green Onion Tofu was THAT meal. It’s the one that reminds me of how simple and delicious it is to add green onions to anything and everything. And of how completely dependent I am on tofu.
How to make Baked Green Onion Tofu
You know this is an easy dish when I can throw it in the oven with 3 kids having hangry meltdowns. All it takes is some cubed extra firm tofu, tamari, rice vinegar, optional sriracha, chopped green onions, and garlic. You can use fresh garlic. I always reach for granulated because my weekday prep time does not yet allow for the peeling of fresh garlic. One day it will. But that day is not today.
Preheat your oven to 425 F and combine everything in a mixing bowl. Give it a few stirs and folds with a spatula, so that every piece of tofu is covered in green onion, tamari goodness. Scrape out every last bit of flavor onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, and pop it in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Just watch the edges of the tofu for browning to know when it’s done.
I love to use this tofu on bowls with toppings like our Spicy Peanut Sauce (below). Alongside some white rice and kale though is equally delicious. I tend to write recipes with extra firm tofu because that’s the texture most people prefer. But if you’re a fan of the softer varieties, I highly recommend you give them a try here.
