Soy-Lime Roasted Tofu


  • 2 (14 ounce) packages extra-firm, water-packed tofu, drained
  • ⅔ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • ⅔ cup lime juice
  • 6 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

Preparation: Ready in 1h 35 minutes

  1. Pat tofu dry and cut into ½- to ¾-inch cubes. Combine soy sauce, lime juice and oil in a medium bowl or large sealable plastic bag. Add the tofu; gently toss to combine. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour or up to 4 hours, gently stirring once or twice.
  2. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  3. Remove the tofu from the marinade with a slotted spoon (discard marinade). Spread out on 2 large baking sheets, making sure the pieces are not touching. Roast, gently turning halfway through, until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
  • To make ahead: Marinate the tofu (Step 1) for up to 4 hours. Cover and refrigerate roasted tofu for up to 5 days.
  • Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.
  • People with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled “gluten-free,” as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.
