Maple Sriracha Tofu

Maple Sriracha Tofu

Sweet, spicy and tangy Tofu, marinated in maple/honey sriracha sauce and simmered in similar flavor sauce.

Tofu is one of the best and easiest plant-based ingredients with good amount of protein. Tofu itself is very bland. It does not have any flavor to it. However, It soaks up any flavors very well due to its spongy texture. Therefor tofu is a great option for marinating with any flavor you can think of! This particular dish uses maple/honey sriracha flavor for marinade. Then it is crisp up on the outside while still keeping it moist in the inside! It is then simmered in similar flavor sauce to give it that extra sweet, spicy and tangy kick!

Maple Sriracha Tofu!

This extremely flavorful tofu goes well with vegan fried rice, brown rice, white rice or quinoa. Serve it with side of steamed or roasted broccoli for adding fiber. Add air-fried or baked vegetable spring rolls to give it that crunch! Doesn’t that sound like a perfect meal?!?!

Marinate Tofu

  • Take tofu out of the box and wrap it in couple of paper towels for anywhere from 30-40 minutes. Place a Weight on the wrapped tofu. Your weight should be heavy enough to press down evenly across the top of the tofu, but not so heavy so as to cause the tofu block to crumble.
  • Once the extra water if gone from the tofu, cut them in cube and keep it aside.
  • Mix everything but tofu listed under "Marinated Tofu" ingredients.
  • Add cubed tofu to the marinate and coat it well. Marinate the tofu for 4-8 hours. I like to marinate this overnight.

Prepare Maple Sriracha Tofu

  • Sauté marinated tofu in little oil until all the cubes get somewhat crispy from outside while still moist in the inside.
  • Once sautéed, keep it aside.
  • Mix ¼ cup of water and everything but ginger and garlic listed under "Maple/Honey Sriracha Sauce" ingredients. Keep it aside.
  • Sauté minced garlic and grated ginger in tiny amount of oil.
  • Once the raw smell of garlic disappears, add ½ cup of water and bring it to boil.
  • Stir the sauce mix very well and then add it to boiling water slowly while you keep stirring the boiling water. The sauce should get a little thicker.
  • Keep simmering the sauce on medium heat for couple of minutes. Add sautéed tofu to the sauce, simmer it for an extra minute.
  • Serve it hot over rice, quinoa etc!
