Sesame Garlic Tofu

Serves 4


  • 1 block extra firm tofu
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup

  3. Remove the weight and cloth/paper towel. Slice the tofu into 2 inch cubes.
  4. In a bowl, add the soy sauce, ginger, garlic powder, maple syrup, and sesame seeds. Mix together to make the marinade.
