14 ounce firm tofu, drained
1 cooking spray

Recipe Directions for Easy Baked Tofu

  1. Wrap tofu snugly in 4 or 5 layers of paper towels and arrange on a plate. Cover with a second plate and balance a heavy can or two on top to weigh down the plate and press down on the tofu; set aside to let drain for 30 minutes. Remove and discard paper towels, then replace with dry paper towels and repeat process a second time.

  2. Preheat oven to 400F. Cut tofu into (1-inch) cubes and arrange them in a single layer on a large parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Lightly spray tofu all over with cooking spray and bake, flipping halfway through, until golden brown and just crisp, about 40 minutes total.
