We love cooking tofu for a quick and easy meal and I’m always looking for new ways to prepare it.

This honey garlic sauce is made from pantry ingredients and it has a perfect blend of salty, sweet and garlic flavours.  I love crisping tofu up in the oven, but if you would like to cook it quicker, you could slice and pan fry the tofu in a bit of oil first.

How to make honey garlic tofu

Preheat your oven to 425℉.

Cut the tofu into cubes about 1 cm x 1 cm.  Pat them down with a paper towel to remove any excess moisture, and then arrange on a baking sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes.

While the tofu is baking, prepare the sauce.

Whisk the corn starch in the water, then all add all the ingredients into a small saucepan and bring to a boil.  Let the sauce boil for a minute or two, then reduce the heat to a simmer and allow the sauce to cook while the tofu finishes baking.

Remove the tofu from the oven and place in a large bowl.  Add the honey garlic sauce to the tofu and toss to cover.

Serve with rice and steamed broccoli, or any other vegetables of your choice.
