In this sweet-spicy tofu dish, a mixture of maple syrup, Sriracha, miso and sesame oil does triple-duty—first as a marinade for the tofu, then as a basting liquid and finally, thinned with a little water, as an umami-rich serving sauce. Pressing the planks of tofu yields a firmer texture in the finished dish, while allowing them to absorb more of the maple-miso mixture. Serve on greens, such as watercress or shredded cabbage, or with braised or stir-fried bok choy, or use as a topping for rice bowls.



45 minutes


  • 2

    14-ounce containers firm OR extra-firm tofu, drained, each cut lengthwise into 4 planks of even thickness

My son started us on a meatless Monday 'thing' and just starting searching out Tofu recipes. I've had pure maple syrup so this recipe was a tofu Thursday meal I invited him up and we really loved it. I did stir fry bok choy and also served on top of rice. Next time I'm going to make extra sauce as that was so flavorful we were scraping the bowl. It was so good!

A Question...
This sounds amazing. However, could I use Tamari instead of the Sicharacha? I am allergic to wheat, corn, potato, and chilis. thanks.

Good dish for guests
This is a great dish when guests include vegetarians and non-vegetarians. It’s substantial and flavorful enough to stand-in on the plate where the meat might otherwise be. I served it topped with black sesame seeds and slivered scallions for extra eye appeal.
