Sure, my basic one is this: Slice into any shape you like, marinade in todays favorite (whatever goes with the planned meal). I like to marinade for at least 4 hours, but overnight is also good if I plan that far ahead. Then drain from the marinade and bake on a cookie sheet at 350 for about 20 minutes. It all depends on the use and how firm you want it. The longer you cook the firmer it is also the thinner the tofu is sliced the firmer it gets with longer cooking times. I also always use White Wave hard tofu as it's our favorite. I don't bother pressing the tofu first.

Just experiment to find your favorite combos of marinade, and cooking times. I often use just tamari to marinade, but I also like some of the store bought ones.

Thanks, Arduinna! That sounds pretty easy!
I've always wondered how the tofu get to be so hard, didn't link that to baking time. I'll try that out, thanks again!!

I found this tofu marinade recipe in my vegan Chinese cookbook:
(for 1.5-2 lbs of tofu)

1.5 cups water
1/4 cup light soy sauce
3 Tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic granules

I am quite sure this is not what you're looking for, but what the heck, it tastes great, so ...

My DH makes tofu cholent. In the oven.

Basically you take all sorts of beans (he mixes up a dozen different types, mostly white-ish types, & flax seeds too) & a little bit of barley and perhaps a spud or two, various spices along the lines of really good chili, then put it in the oven for, oh, many hours. Then (particularly if you're Jewish and the Sabbath will be starting soon ) you take it out of the oven and immediately put it on the stovetop on a low light, where you leave it overnight.

& eat it for lunch the next afternoon. With a bottle of red wine (I prefer something sweet with it, a Merlot, perhaps ... )

I usually bake tofu like this when I want something simple ,quick and yummy.

Put soy sauce, onion powder, garlic powder( I sometimes use fresh instead) and ground or fresh ginger in a shallow dish. Cut tofu into slices and put it in dish. Marinate for 15 -30 mitnutes. Bake at about 350 degrees for about an hour. Bake in marinade. I have never measured anything so I'm not sure how much of everything. The marinade should just about cover the tofu, which is about 1/2 inch thick.
