Smokey Blackened Tofu


  • 1lbs AZ Tofu SuperFirm tofu
  • 1 Cup Tamari
  • Olive oil
    • Spice Rub
  • 4 Tbsp Smoked Paprika
  • 2 Tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 Tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 ½ Tsp Dried Thyme
  • 1 ½ Tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1 Tsp Chipotle Powder
  • 1 Tsp Cayenne
  • 1 Tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • ½ Tsp Salt



Preheat oven to 375°F.

Slice tofu evenly into ½” flat cutlets.

Place the tofu cutlets into a container and completely cover in tamari.

            Allow the tofu to marinate for 15-20 minutes.

While the tofu is marinating prepare the spice rub by combining all dry ingredients, mix thoroughly.

Remove the tofu cutlets from the tamari, and begin the dredging process, ensuring to completely cover all sides of the cutlets with the spice rub.

Coat a cooking stone or casserole dish with a thin layer of olive oil. (Cooking spray also works, but I prefer the flavor of olive oil.)

Place the cutlets on the stone and place in the oven.

Bake for 10 minutes, flip the cutlets, and bake for another 5-10 minutes or until tofu is blackened and crispy.

Serve immediately with your favorite roasted vegetables.
