These little vegan tofu nuggets are baked in a sweet and spicy sauce for a delectable dish. If you like baked tofu or barbecue tofu, try this easy sweet and spicy baked tofu recipe.


  • 1 block firm or extra firm tofu, cubed
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp barbecue sauce
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp hot sauce

Steps to Make It

  1. First, prepare your tofu. Like most vegan tofu recipes, this one will taste best if you press the tofu first. Why? Tofu is like a sponge - the more water you gently press out of it, the more delicious marinade it can soak up! Not sure how to press tofu? See this easy step-by-step guide: How to press tofu.

  2. In a baking dish, whisk together all ingredients and add tofu, coating well. Marinate at least one hour.

  3. Bake at 375 degreed for 35 minutes, tossing occasionally to bake tofu evenly.
