Crispy Tofu with Sesame-Ginger Dipping Sauce
Health Highlights
This crispy tofu is loaded with flavour and is paired with a fun sesame-ginger dipping sauce.


2 cup Tofu, regular, firm (drained of liquid)
1 tbsp Sesame oil
1 tbsp Sesame seeds
1 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 cup Tahini
1 tbsp Honey, raw
1 tsp minced Ginger root
1 1/2 tbsp Coconut aminos, Coconut Secret (or tamari)
1 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1 whole lime(s) Lime juice (fresh)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C) and prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Unwrap your tofu block and place it between two thick sheets of paper towels and place a flat, heavy object, such as a  pot on top. Leave to drain for 5 minutes.
  3. Cut the tofu into thin, 1-inch squares. Arrange in a single layer on the baking sheet, brush each side with sesame oil, and sprinkle with sesame seeds and salt. Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes until crispy and golden.
  4. While your tofu is cooking, prepare your sauce by adding the tahini, honey, ginger, coconut aminos, garlic, and lime juice to a small bowl and whisk all of the ingredients together until thoroughly combined. If you'd like to thin it out a little bit add water one tablespoon at a time to the bowl and whisk until smooth. 
  5. Serve tofu squares immediately with the sauce on the side for dipping.


Quick Tips:

  • This dish makes a great side or snack but also acts as a salad topper or the main option for protein. Add sauteed vegetables and rice to the side to make it a meal.
  • Low-sodium tamari works if you don't have coconut aminos.
