I made up this side dish to go with it. Serve with a grain of your choice. This made 3 large servings. (Also – try as a topping on a green salad!!)
- 1 package extra firm tofu (mine was 14 – 19 oz)
- 1/4 reduced sodium tamari
- 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
- 2 Tbsp ketchup
- 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 tsp hot sauce, or to taste
- 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
- a bit of olive oil
Press the tofu well to get rid of as much water as possible. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium-large bowl, combine tamari, maple syrup, ketchup, apple cider vinegar, hot sauce, sesame seeds, garlic powder, and black pepper. Whisk to combine.
Drizzle a bit of olive oil on a glass 9×9 baking dish and spread to coat.
Once you’ve gotten quite a bit of water out of the tofu, cut into 1/2″ cubes. Put into the bowl with the sauce. Toss with a spoon to fully coat all tofu pieces. Pour into the prepared glass pan. Bake 35 minutes, stirring/flipping every 10 – 15 minutes.
