I find I prefer my tofu cooked in both the oven and on the stove-top in order to achieve that perfect crispy (and sticky!) exterior with a well-flavored chewy interior. I present you with that method, as well as the MOST delicious maple ginger sauce you could ever dream of. Throw in some rice noodles and steamed broccoli, and you have yourself an ever so satisfying meal! Enjoy . . .

  1. Among the reasons I became Vegan was to eliminate saturated fat and sugar from my diet. I haven’t yet made this but it looks delicious. I’ll just use olive oil, and half the syrup. I’ll let you know how it works out.

  2. 4 stars
    This recipe was a hit with my family, Initially the tofu came out way too sweet for my taste, though, so I did a few things to cut the sweetness. I doubled the apple cider vinegar, added juice of half a lemon and a generous splash of soy sauce. After all of that, it was still sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. I also made a 2nd batch of the sauce to mix with the noodles. My husband requested that I make this recipe again! I especially liked how the tofu came out crispy. Before trying this recipe, I did no know how to make tofu crispy (and I cook tofu often).
