Savory Baked Tofu Bites are seasoned and roasted for the perfect addition to any salad, pasta, rice, or soup! They get a roasted, almost nutty flavor with a salty and smoky seasoned crust with a chewy bite. Super easy to make, low carb and great source of protein!
Open the tofu package and drain out the water. Then place on a cutting board and start to slice it into bite-size rectangle or square pieces. I do this by first making 5 slices across the length of the tofu block.
Next, turn the slices on their side so you can slice them all in half, so you have 10 tofu 'sticks'.
Finally, slice each stick into bite-size pieces. I usually slice across this last time 5-6 times, yielding 50-60 pieces.
Place all pieces in a single layer on paper towel in a large casserole dish. Then cover with more paper towel and pat to soak up the moisture. Let the tofu pieces sit on the paper towel for at least 1 hour to soak up the moisture. If you are able to, change out the paper towel and let soak on new paper towel for another hour.
Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.
Make the spice mixture by adding all seasonings/spices to a small mixing bowl. Then mix to combine.
Spray or brush olive oil on the pan. Then add the tofu and spray the top with olive oil or drizzle oil over top and toss with fingers to coat.
Sprinkle the spice mixture over top and then toss to coat. Sprinkle more as needed until all sides are spiced.
Roast in the oven for 20 minutes. Then remove and flip each piece over and roast for another 10 minutes.
That's it! Serve over salad, pasta, rice, soup, or just snack on alone!
