Number of Servings: 4


    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)


1.) Drain and press tofu. Cut into four slices, then cube the slices (tip: keeping the number of cubes per slice even helps with portion control later--this makes four portions, so if each slice is eight cubes, one portion has eight cubes)

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!

    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

    Very Good
    I made several changes: salsa for ketchup, brown sugar for syrup, and no seeds. I also baked six slices rather than cubes. I thought it was really good this way, and thanks for the inspiration. - 6/18/11

    Very Good
    I made this as stated, minus sesame seeds. I definitely enjoyed it and will be making it again! I marinated for over 24 hours so the tofu really soaked up the sauce, it was great! - 9/18/09

    Quite delicious! I used it on two blocks of tofu & it was plenty. I also substituted honey for the syrup because I didn't have any real maple syrup on hand, but I only used 1 tbs because I didn't want it to be too sweet. It was great! Thank you! - 10/8/08
