Easy 5-ingredient crispy baked tofu. The perfect protein-rich accompaniment to salads, bowls, tacos, and more!


  • 1 (1 lb) block firm or extra-firm organic tofu
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot starch/powder


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Chop the tofu into 1-inch cubes and place in a medium bowl.
  3. Drizzle the olive oil and tamari over the tofu and toss to coat. Then sprinkle on the garlic powder and arrowroot and toss again.
  4. Transfer the tofu cubes to the prepared baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes.


Make a Greek variation by adding 2 tbsp of lemon juice and 1 tsp each dried basil and oregano to the tofu before baking!

Store leftover tofu cubes in the fridge for up to 5 days. They make a great protein option for work lunches!
