This baked Crispy Sesame Tofu recipe is ideal for dinner when you want something healthy and light. You can serve it with rice or noodles on a bed of stir-fried vegetables.
This is an easy and straightforward recipe but you need to allow some extra time for pressing the tofu and marinating it.
Marinating gives tofu some wonderful flavours. Here I have used some sesame oil, tamari, ginger, garlic and mint to give this marinade an Asian twist which pairs perfectly with stir-fried vegetables. For these you can use whatever is in season. I also like to add some bean sprouts to the mix.
I developed this recipe for Bacofoil®’s latest healthy eating campaign. I use marinating as a healthy alternative to frying whenever I feel like cooking with less fat. It infuses and soften the food that you can then simply grill.
I made this Crispy Sesame Tofu with Bacofoil® The Non-Stick Kitchen Foil and Bacofoil® All Purpose Zipper Bags.
Bacofoil® All Purpose Zipper Bags are tough and tear proof, so there is no danger of the bag piercing when you flip the ingredients around. Also the secure zip closure gives extra peace of mind and keeps the food really fresh. Bacofoil® All Purpose Zipper Bags have a handy stand-alone base which makes them ideal to marinate food in the fridge.
I baked the tofu strips on Bacofoil® The Non-Stick Kitchen Foil. Unlike normal foil, there is no need for oil or butter and the food really doesn’t stick to it which is fantastic.
