Maple ginger tofu

Makes approx 2 servings.


400g tofu⁣

2 tbs corn starch⁣

2 tbs coconut oil (plus extra to fry)⁣

4 tbs maple syrup⁣

1 tbs ginger (I used a paste)⁣

1 tbs apple cider vinegar⁣

1/2 tsp garlic powder⁣


1. Press the tofu around an hour before cooking to allow all the water to drain⁣- this is an important step to ensure the tofu becomes crispy!

2. Preheat the oven to 205°C⁣

3. Slice the tofu into small cubes.

4. Toss the tofu in the cornstarch to evenly coat all cubes⁣.

5. Over a medium heat, heat some coconut oil in a pan then add in the coated tofu, turning a few times until all sides turn golden⁣.

6. In a bowl or blender add the maple syrup, coconut oil, ginger, apple cider vinegar, and garlic powder, and mix/blend until smooth.⁣

7. Transfer the tofu into a bowl and pour the sauce over it to coat all cubes evenly (dont get rid of the remaining sauce!)⁣.

8. Transfer the tofu into a baking tray and pour what’s left of the sauce over the cubes⁣.

9. Bake for 15 minutes (or until the sauce is bubbling).⁣

10. Serve!

I served it with some veggies and noodles, topped it with some sesame seeds, and a squeeze of lime!
