If you struggle with enjoying tofu, this guide shows you how to cook tofu using 4 techniques to improve the taste and texture of your tofu.




  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk or almond milk
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp rice wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dry thyme
  • 1/2 tsp salt




Tear the tofu into even pieces. Make sure they are about the same size so they cook evenly in the oven.

If the pan dries up when flipping your tofu, spray some of your tofu with a little spray oil.

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. To reheat, place the tofu in a toaster oven or the air-fryer at 400F for 3-5 minutes or until warmed through and crispy.
