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
