Smoky maple tofu.


One block extra-firm tofu, sliced into 20 rectangles* (then cut into triangles if you like)

3 tbsp pure maple syrup

1 tbsp brown sugar

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

2 tbsp LITE Kikkoman Soy Sauce

1 1/2 tbsp liquid smoke

2 tbsp sesame oil

Cracked black pepper

Rock salt, to taste

*be sure your tofu is slices as evenly as possible, the odd super thin edge will burn to a crisp pretty easily. Slice as thin as you can, I cut mine to be a little less than 1/4".

In a zip bag, or a shallow dish, marinate your tofu for at least 30 minutes. Scoop the marinade over the tofu to ensure it's evenly displaced.

Preheat your oven to 425F

On a silpat sheet or cookie sheet, place your tofu down and spoon a bit of marinade over your tofu pieces. Bake for ten minutes then flip, spoon marinade overtop and bake for another 10-13 minutes. Let sit for about 10 minutes, they will then firm up. If you cut your tofu into smaller pieces, be mindful of the bake time.

I dig this in BLTs, on salads, with mashed or scalloped potatoes.. that kinda thing. Enjoy. x
