Ooh, boy, French Toast Baked Tofu. This is quite a yummy recipe and it makes me very happy! :mrgreen:

I intended to make Pumpkin Spice Baked Tofu, but the pumpkin flavor didn’t really stick. Instead, the baked tofu tasted more like French toast. I mean, pumpkin spice would have been nice, but I’ll take French toast any day! 😉

French Toast Baked Tofu

  • 1 cup vanilla soy milk
  • 1.5 tbsp vanilla extract

  • 1.5 cups shredded coconut

Directions:

Press water from tofu (about 2 hours) and then cut into cubes. Mix soy milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg (and pumpkin) together. Then, place the tofu cubes into the mixture and allow to marinate for 2 hours.

In a separate bowl, combine the shredded coconut and brown sugar.

Mix well.

When the tofu is finished marinating, use a slotted spoon to remove cubes from the liquid mixture and add to the bowl with shredded coconut and brown sugar.

Coat the tofu cubes with the coconut + brown sugar mixture.

Then, spread the coated cubes (and remaining coconut) onto a baking sheet lined with tinfoil or parchment paper. Bake at 375*F for about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and toss tofu cubes. Return baking sheet to oven and bake for another 10-15 minutes on 375*F until shredded coconut begins to brown.

Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes. Serve warm or cold.

* Since the pumpkin flavor didn’t really come through, you could probably nix this ingredient all together.

  1. Wow, I would never have thought to try anything like this!!
    It looks so good! Maybe even hubby will try it – he is seriously not a tofu fan lol

  2. That sounds like it would take a bit of preparation and thinking ahead, but the looks of your bowl make it so worth it!! I’m not big on tofu (not vegetarian either) but I’d definitely try it like that!

  3. The french toast looks good {although I don’t do tofu} nothing against tofu, just don’t like the taste or texture…..but our dairy cows LOVE it! We use tofu mixed in with the rest of their breakfast and lunch and have been doing so for years. Cheers!

  4. I just so happen to have tofu defrosting in my fridge. Perfect timing! I am going to try it tonight. I wonder if it would be good with rice to make a “complete” meal, or perhaps with some oats? hmmm.

  5. that looks great! i had a ton of tofu not too long ago and couldn’t think of what to do with it. definitely going to try this when i get the chance 🙂

  6. This recipe makes me want to try tofu again! I am always hesitant to eat it because I had a bad experience in the past – I don’t think I got all of the liquid out of it. I guess I’ll just have to give it another chance!
