Take your tofu out of the package and drain it.
Either press the tofu in a tofu press for 30 minutes, or wrap tofu in paper towel or towel and place a heavy pan or object over the tofu. Press for 30 minutes but if you're short on time, 15 minutes will do.
Cut tofu in cubes
In a mug or bowl, mix together soy sauce, sesame oil, vinegar, maple syrup, ginger and garlic.
Place the tofu in a storage container with a lid and pour the marinade over.
Put the lid on the container and gently turn container upside down, to make sure tofu marinade gets on all sides.
Place tofu in the fridge, upside down and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes. 1-8 hours is best, but sometimes we don't have the time
Pour nutritional yeast (or corn starch) over tofu and gently mix until you don't see the nutritional yeast
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
Take tofu out of the marinade and place on an oiled, or lined baking sheet - save some of the marinade
Bake for 15 minutes, then take out of the oven and flip
Spoon the rest of the marinade on top of the tofu
Place back in oven and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until the tofu is caramelized.
Take out of oven and off of baking sheet and let it cool for 5 minutes to let it firm up
