Slice tofu as desired. I like to cut it into wedge shapes, so some parts are thicker than others (see the video for how I cut mine). Rustic cuts are the best because they will give it a nice crispy texture.
In a medium sized baking dish, whisk together the marinade ingredients. Place the tofu in the baking dish with the marinade, rubbing it so that it gets on all sides. Arrange the tofu in a single layer if possible, and let marinate for 30 minutes, flipping and rubbing on extra marinade at least once.
Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375ºF and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, stir together all of the glaze ingredients.
Arrange the tofu in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and spoon half the glaze over the top.
Bake for 22 minutes. Flip the tofu pieces, spoon the other half of the glaze over the top, and bake an additional 22 minutes or until the edges are crisp and the glaze has been absorbed.
