Baked Pesto Tofu

This simple baked pesto tofu takes just minutes to throw together and is delicious as a finger food, topping for salad, or in a panini with tomato, basil and vegan cheese.

My girls love pesto at the moment, so I had the idea of adapting my easy Asian baked tofu recipe to create an Italian version, and we all really liked it.

I used Sacla store bought vegan pesto, which is really delicious. Try this on top of my perfect Italian salad.

vegan pesto baked tofu recipe

Baked Pesto Tofu


  • 200g block of firm tofu
  • 2-3 teaspoons vegan pesto
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 190*C. 
  2. Chop your tofu into bit sized cubes and add to a bowl.
  3. Add a few teaspoons of pesto, season and mix well so all the tofu is coated. 
  4. Spread on a baking tray (the pesto is quite oily so there’s no need to grease your baking tray) and cook for 20-30 minutes, flipping it once or twice, until slightly crisp.
  5. Enjoy!
