From my friend B, who is a lifelong vegetarian and has cracked to tofu code. This seriously tastes like junk food, and L will eat it too.
Buy extra-firm tofu. Pat it dry, but no need to press it.
3 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 tablespoon each of vegetable and sesame oil, and some grated ginger and chopped garlic.
Bake in rimmed pan at 400 for 30ish minutes, or until the tofu is desired level of crispy. Turn half way through cooking.
