Adapted from VICKY9999's Baked Tofu recipe -

  • 1 tbs oil - Sesame or Peanut is good mixed with Canola to get a higher smoke point
  • 1 lb Extra Firm Tofu (I prefer WhiteWave/WestSoy as it's denser than other brands and doesn't require pressing first)
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium Soy Sauce (normal is fine)
  • 2 tbs Maple Syrup
  • 2 tbs Ketchup
  • 1 tbs Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp Hot Sauce
  • 1 tbs Black Sesame Seeds (white is fine, I just like how black looks)
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground Black Pepper

Cut the tofu into triangles. Mix together the remaining ingredients. Heat oil in frying pan and fry tofu for approximately 4 minutes on each side until nicely browned. Add the liquid mixture to the pan and cook until heated through and the liquid is your desired consistency.
