Simple Soy Roasted Tofu Recipe

Simple Soy Roasted Tofu Recipe {LAZY Vegan Dinner Idea}

  • Cook Time: 20
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


This recipe is perfect for your busy weeknights / days because it is SO easy for when you want to eat something healthy and tasty but you are also feeling lazy. Haha! This is really low effort. Plus it’s great for meal prep! Use the leftover tofu for a future meal or for a simple, tasty salad or bowl protein topping.


  • 1 block organic tofu, pressed and cut into cubes
  • 12 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt (or sub garlic powder to be less salty)


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees F and line a standard size baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium-large container, add tofu cubes and drizzle with soy sauce and sesame oil. Sprinkle with garlic salt. Cover. Gently turn container to evenly distribute the marinade.
  3. Marinate for at least 20 minutes, turning the container once or twice (or when you remember).
  4. Spread evenly on prepared baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 20-24 minutes.
  5. Serve and enjoy!


  • You can bake the tofu longer for a more golden brown finish – experiment to find your preferred finished texture.
  • The size of your tofu cubes may impact your cooking time (smaller -> faster, larger -> slower) – cook to your preferred golden-brownness. 
  • We like 2 (or sometimes 3) tablespoons of soy sauce, but that will make the sodium level pretty high – just a note if sodium is something you track
