Shopping List
    For the Tofu
  • 1 (14 ounce) pack extra-firm tofu
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch (optional) For the Spicy Agave Glaze
  • 3 tablespoons neutral-flavored oil (grapeseed, safflower, or avocado)
  • 3 tablespoons agave syrup
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 packed tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Step 2: Remove the tofu from the packaging and drain all the liquid. Press the tofu using a tofu press, or cut it in half lengthwise and wrap each half in clean, absorbent towels. You can use paper towels or clean reusable ones. Set the wrapped tofu on a cutting board and then set something heavy on top of it. A heavy cast-iron pan or book would work. Press out the moisture in this way for 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Step 3: Meanwhile, combine all of the Spicy Agave Glaze ingredients in a tall mason jar and emulsify it with a stick blender. You could also use a small blender, or whisk by hand. If doing so by hand, mince the ginger very well. It will be less creamy, but still tasty.
  4. Step 4: Remove the wet towels or the press from the tofu. Cut the tofu into 1" inch pieces.
  5. Step 5: Place the tofu in a bowl and gently toss it with the oil, coating all sides. Add the optional starch and coat all sides until no white starch patches remain.
  6. Step 6: Transfer the oiled tofu to the baking sheet in a single layer and roast for 30 minutes, flipping them over after the first 15 minutes. Note: Before flipping, set the baking sheet on a cooling rack/oven top and let the tofu rest for 1 to 2 minutes. Giving the tofu a little time to cool off before flipping will help it not stick or tear on the baking sheet. After flipping, place the tofu back in the oven to finish cooking.
  7. Step 8: Toss the cooked tofu with a splash of the prepared glaze and top with cilantro.
  8. Serve: Enjoy with rice or cauliflower rice.
