Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Put a piece of parchment paper on a sheet pan.
Take tofu out of package. Dry it well, pressing on it, with paper towels.
16 ounces extra firm tofu (not the shelf-stable vacuum-packed kind)
Slice it into 1/2” slices and lay the slices on the parchment paper.
Mix the following ingredients together in a small bowl.
1 Tablespoon water
1 teaspoon tahini
1 teaspoon miso (white or yellow recommended; red if you like tangy miso)
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
Added spices appropriate to your dish (e.g., thyme/rosemary/sage, smoked paprika/chili powder/garlic powder)
Brush both sides of the tofu slices with the mixture. Put the pan into the oven. Bake for 20 minutes, then flip the slices. Then bake 15 minutes more, until both sides are golden. It will firm up more as it cools.
