1 block extra firm tofu
3 Tbsp Reduced-Sodium Tamari (soy sauce)
1 Tbsp Water
2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
2 Tbsp Ketchup
1 Tbsp Cider Vinegar
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Liquid Smoke
1 Tbsp Sesame Seeds
Black pepper and a dash of hot sauce (optional)
2.) Combine all the other ingredients to make a marinade. Add the tofu, toss to coat, cover, and refrigerate for at least two hours.
3.) Preheat the oven to 375 F. Place the tofu cubes on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Turn and bake until golden, about 10-15 minutes more. (If you enjoy a firm, almost chewy tofu texture, refrigerate the cooked cubes until completely cooled to firm them up before serving) Great hot or cold!
Number of Servings: 4

This is very easy to prepare and the flavour combination is incredible. The liquid smoke is worth it - I found it at my local grocery store and it really adds something unique to the mix. The final product tasted AMAZING and I'm going to use this marinade on other meats in the future! - 5/29/10
This is probably thee best tofu I have ever eaten. I didn't marinade it as stated. Just browned my tofu in the pan then added all the ingredients and made a sauce. Oh man, this was soo good! My 4 yr old raved about it too. Excellent, excellent flavor. Thanks for posting. - 10/5/12
