3. Place the cubes over a parchment paper, place them in a mold or baking tray. Pour the sauce on the cubes.

4. Finely cut the peppers and leeks, add 1 tablespoon soy sauce and olive oil on the pan. Sauté thoroughly at high temperature. Mix by adding the latest spices.

6. When cooked, mix thoroughly with sauteed vegetables.

7. Flip the baked tofu by turning the sides and bake the sides and edges. Remove it from the oven when it has reached the crunch.
