worldly roasted tofu cubes

One of the easiest and tastiest ways to prepare tofu is by making a batch or two of these worldly roasted tofu cubes. While you can enjoy them straight from the oven, I actually prefer to divide the recipe into three jars, season them each differently, then have them available whenever I need a simple and flavorful protein pick throughout the week.

  • Yield: 3 servings 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 (14- to 16-ounce) package organic extra-firm tofu, gently squeezed and patted dry, cut into large dices
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, or as needed
  • 2 teaspoons coconut aminos or tamari
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon organic cornstarch (optional)
  • Worldly Seasoning Duos, as desired (see below)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss together the tofu, olive oil, coconut aminos, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle with cornstarch, if desired, and toss just to coat.
  3. Spread the tofu cubes in a single layer on the lined baking sheet. Bake until the tofu is gently browned, about 25 minutes. Add more salt and pepper, if desired.
  4. Transfer the tofu to three jars. Add desired amount of one of the Worldly Seasoning Duos (see below) to each jar, ideally choosing three different duos. (Hint: Season liberally!) Seal, shake, and serve as desired. Or chill until ready to serve.

Notes

Worldly Seasoning Duos

Below you’ll find my favorite six mixes. I like to keep it simple with just two ingredients each. But do create your own blend to add to this list, if you like! You can make them in advance by just mixing together equal parts ground spices/dry herbs in each duo and store in small labeled jars.

Lebanese: cinnamon + cumin or mint

South Asian: curry powder + ginger

French: garlic + tarragon

Mexican: chili powder or cumin + cilantro

Italian: garlic + basil or oregano

Greek: garlic or onion + dill
