  • Heat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Drain and press tofu for about 15 minutes (I use a High-Protein tofu, which doesn’t require pressing!)
  • In a large bowl, place the tofu, corn starch, chili sauce, lime juice, chili powder, ground ginger, brown sugar, and red pepper flakes.  Stir and coat to combine.
  • Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper.  Add the 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil to the parchment paper.  Place the tofu in a single row on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for 40 minutes, flipping half way.
  • Take the tofu out of the oven, and sprinkle with salt.
