Tofu is one of those foods you couldn’t live without. I like it in every possible way, but I had a hard time getting the hang of it because if you don’t know how to prepare it, it can be quite bland.

In several recipes on the blog I have shared a very interesting way of preparing it and in fact I would say that it is one of my favorites. It consists of marinating the tofu, coating it with cornstarch (although any other starch can be used) and grilling it with a little oil.



  • 340 g de tofu firme (12 oz)
  • 1 cucharada de tamari o salsa de soja
  • 1 cucharadita de aceite de oliva virgen extra (opcional)
  • 1/2 cucharadita de ajo en polvo (opcional)
  • 36 cucharadas de maicena (ver notas)


  1. Preheat oven to 200º or 400ºF.
  2. Cut the tofu into cubes and put them in a large bowl along with the tamari or soy sauce, oil and garlic powder. Stir until they are well integrated and let stand for at least 5 minutes (ideally, leave it for a long time so that the tofu absorbs the marinade). If you’re in a hurry, you can cook it right away.
  3. Strain the tofu and divide into 3 batches. Put 1/3 of the tofu cubes in a freezer bag with 1-2 tablespoons of cornstarch in each batch and shake until perfectly coated. Repeat this operation with the other 2/3 and add more cornstarch if necessary. You can also coat them by tossing the cubes into a plate with cornstarch, but the bag technique is easier and more even.
  4. Place the tofu on a tray lined with paper oven and bake for 15 minutes. Flip the tofu cubes over and bake an additional 15 minutes or until golden brown all over.
  5. Serve immediately or refrigerate leftovers 4- 5 days. I like it as it is, but it is even better if it is accompanied with a sauce or used to make other dishes such as sweet-and-sour tofu or general Tso tofu.


  • Oil is optional, although I think it looks better if you use it. The same goes for garlic powder.
  • The more cornstarch you use, the crispier your tofu will be. I like the way it looks better with 6 tablespoons, but if you want you can use 3 or even less.
  • If your package of tofu is smaller, use less cornstarch.
