Za'atar Tofu

  • 1 Block (15oz) Extra firm tofu
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 tsp. Oregano, dried
  • 1 tsp. Sumac
  • 1 tsp. Cumin
  • 1 tsp. Sesame seeds
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1/4 tsp. Black pepper

Herb Yogurt Sauce

  • 5 oz. Plain non dairy yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. Chives, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. Parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. Agave syrup
  • Juice of 1/2 a Lemon
  • Pinch of Salt and Pepper


  • You first want to press your tofu. Either with a tofu press, or by placing something heavy on top. Press for at least 15 minutes, but the longer the better.
  • When you are ready to make the tofu, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 
  • Then cut the tofu into cubes and place in a bowl. Drizzle the olive oil on top, then toss to coat the tofu. 
  • Then sprinkle in all the seasonings, and toss to coat all the tofu cubes in the spice mixture. 
  • Place all the tofu on a baking sheet, and bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until the tofu is all brown and firm and a bit crispy. 
  • While the tofu is baking, make the yogurt sauce. Add all the ingredients for the herb yogurt sauce to a small mixing bowl. Stir to combine everything. Then, taste and adjust seasoning. Set aside. 
  • Once the tofu is done, serve immediately with flat bread, drizzled with herb yogurt sauce!
