Ingredients
 
 

  • 350 g extra firm tofu (refrigerated type)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch

Instructions
 

  • Cut the tofu into cubes of about 0.5 inch (1-1 / 4 centimeter).
    Raw tofu cut into cubes ready for seasoning.
  • Press the tofu cubes for at least 15 minutes on a towel between 2 cutting boards to extract as much moisture as possible. Note that you must also put weight on the board on top of cubes (filled bowl, pounds, etc ...) (Optional, see notes)

  • Preheat the oven to 400 ° F (205 ° C).
    Oven with a temperature of 400 fahrenheit.
  • Once the pressing is done, mix the oil and the tofu cubes in a bowl.

Notes

The tofu pressing step is optional. This step results in crispier cubes, but it is not required for the recipe to be successful. You can simply skip this step and absorb the excess moisture with a towel.
If you want to add flavor to your tofu cubes, you just have to add your spice mix along with the cornstarch. You can easily vary the flavors while keeping this recipe very simple. If needed, I have a page dedicated to my spice blends.
This recipe makes approximately 235g of cooked tofu cubes, or 4 servings of 59g. Note that the nutritional values ​​will greatly depend on the tofu used, so read the labels carefully!
