1 cake firm tofu (16 oz)
1 T vegetable oil
1 T dark sesame oil
3 T soy sauce
2 tsp grated peeled ginger root (optional)
1 garlic clove, pressed (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut the tofu into slices, cubes, triangles, or sticks (I did sticks). Lightly oil a baking dish large enough to hold the tofu in a single layer. Whisk together the marinade ingredients (or a variation on ingredients) and drizzle over the tofu. Gently turn or toss to coat thoroughly. Bake uncovered, stirring once or twice, until the oil is sizzling and the tofu is firm and chewy, 30-40 minutes. Serve hot, at room temp or chilled.
