Directions

  1. Cut the cake of tofu horizontally into three equal slices. Stack the slices and cut down through them vertically in parallel lines, dividing the cake first into halves the quarters, and finally eighths, to yield 24 sticks. Arrange the tofu sticks in a baking dish in a single layer.
  2. Mix together  the soy sauce, rice vinegar, and garlic and drizzle over the tofu sticks . Set aside  for  about 30 minutes, turning once after  15 minutes, so the  tofu absorbs  the marinade evenly.

Dip each marinated tofu stick into the flour mixture and then coat well with the seasoned bread crumbs. Arrange the breaded sticks on the baking sheet so they’re not touching and bake for about 30 minutes, until crisp and hot .
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the dipping sauce ingredients.
  6. Serve the baked tofu sticks warm, accompanied  by the dipping sauce.
