  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1 (14 ounce or 400 gram) package extra-firm tofu, drained, pressed, and cut into ¼ to ½ thick slices
  1. Stir the soy sauce, vinegar, and liquid smoke together in a small bowl or cup.

  2. Place the tofu slices in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them.

  3. Marinate the tofu for at least 30 minutes at room temperature, or covered and chilled for up to 24 hours.

  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  5. Arrange the tofu slices on the baking sheet in a single layer.

  6. Bake the tofu for about 40 minutes, carefully turning the pieces halfway through, until they're darkened and slightly shrunken.

  7. Remove the tofu from the oven and serve or use immediately, or chill for later.
