Glazed Tofu


A few minutes of simmering in a luscious maple glaze flavors this firm tofu. The cubes are also wonderful in stir-fries and salads.

  • 4Servings


  • 2 Tbs. low-sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 3 Tbs. maple syrup
  • 3 Tbs. mirin
  • 1 lb. firm or extra-firm tofu, drained and pressed for 15 minutes
  • 1 Tbs. vegetable oil


Mix tamari, maple syrup and mirin in bowl. Set aside.

Cut tofu into 3?4-inch cubes. Heat oil in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tofu, and fry until golden, turning every 3 minutes, about 10 minutes. (You don’t need to brown all six sides.) Add tamari mixture, and cook 3 to 4 minutes, turning occasionally, until tofu is coated with glaze.

Arrange around Summer Roll Salad.
