Tofu with Maple Syrup
- 3 Tbsp oil
- 300g tofu cubed into 2cm pieces
- 1Tbsp minced garlic
- ¼ cup soy or tamari
- 1 Tbsp minced ginger
- Juice of ½ lemon
- 1 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp minced herbs - Ruth uses coriander, basil mint and Vietnamese mint
Sauté garlic, ginger and herbs in olive oil on medium heat for 1 minute.
Add the cubed tofu and coat all the pieces. Stir carefully.
Pour soy or tamari over and stir. Sauté for 2-3 minutes.
Add the lemon juice and maple syrup. The mixture will be quite watery.
Sauté until the tofu has absorbed all the liquid, 4-5 minutes or an additional minute if you like a crunchy texture on the outside of the tofu.
Serve immediately. Good with a stir fry or mixed roast vegetables. Good reheated too!
