What’s In This Garlic Honey Tofu Recipe?

  • Tofu: extra firm, pressed before tossing. You can invest in a tofu press, or just do it the old fashioned way by stacking a cutting board on top of the tofu.  Hey, it works!
  • Raw Honey: or normal honey, whatever you have on hand. We only use raw honey, because thats how we keep the honey from our beehives.
  • Worcestershire sauce: a lower sodium version of soy sauce or tamari. Make sure yous doesn’t have anchovies for a vegetarian version.
  • Garlic: Raw garlic jazzes up this sauce, and gives the tofu a serious kick!
  • Spices: Garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper to taste
  • Corn Starch: just enough to coat the tofu and help it crisp in the oven. This is the secret ingredient to irrisistably crunchy baked tofu!

How Do I Bake Crispy Honey Tofu?

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, line a sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the tofu, corn starch, garlic powder, onion powder and 1 teaspoon of the coconut oil. Toss well to coat the tofu.
  3. Take the remaining 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and coat the parchment lined sheet pan with a thin layer of the oil. Place the tofu on the sheet pan in a single layer, and roast for 40 minutes, flipping halfway.
  4. To make the honey garlic sauce, add the Worcestershire sauce, raw honey, sesame seeds, and garlic in a small bowl and stir well to combine.
  5. Once tofu has finished cooking, add it back to the large mixing bowl and pour honey garlic sauce over.  Toss the tofu so it’s coated in the sauce. Serve over rice, lo mein, or roasted vegetables!

A Few Notes About Raw Honey

Raw honey is just honey that has not been pasteurized!  We take our honey straight from the hive, and don’t process or subject it to high heat.  Pasteurizing can kill bad (and beneficial) macrobiotics in the honey. You can use normal store-bought honey for this recipe… it doesn’t have to be raw.  That is just the way we like to keep our honey.  Babies under the age of 1 should not be given honey, and pregnant women shouldavoid unpasteurized foods.  Eat responsibly!

The best place to find raw honey is straight from your local beekeeper!  Check out a farmer’s market or farm stand near you – or reach out to your county or state beekeeping association to connect with beekeeper’s near by.  Support local bees, local keepers, and enjoy the sweet benefits.
