This easy smoky baked tofu is easy to season and cook. Bakes in the oven quickly and perfect in bowls or topped in my vegan split pea soup.


  • 1 block (450g) extra firm tofu, pressed and drained
  • 1 tsp smoke paprika
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp dry basil
  • 1 tsp maple syrup, optional
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. After pressing your tofu, pat it dry with a clean kitchen towel. Cube your tofu into 16 pieces.
  2. Place the tofu into an airtight container with the remaining ingredients, seal container and give the ingredients a gentle shake to coat your tofu pieces evenly.
  3. Set tofu pieces on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place in the oven for 25 minutes or until the edges have browned.


You can replace the nutritional yeast with 1 teaspoon cornstarch or 1 teaspoon potato starch.

I like to prep the tofu as the soup is cooking so it’s all done at about the same time.
