Drain tofu and place on a plate. Cover with another plate and weight the top with a food can or other object of about 1 pound. Let stand 20 to 30 minutes to extract excess liquid. Pour off liquid and cut tofu into 3/4 -inch-thick slices. Place slices in a single layer in a shallow dish. In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard and herbs. Pour mixture over the tofu and let marinate 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove tofu from the marinade and place on the baking sheet. Bake until firm and lightly browned, about 1 hour.
