Number of Servings:


  1. 1 - inch peice of ginger peel and finely chop
  2. 1 stalks - lemon grass omit if unavailable
  3. 1/4 cups - apple juice or cider fresh squeezed OJ can work but apple juice is preferred
  4. 1 tablespoons - lemon juice
  5. 1/4 cups - soy sauce
  6. 2 tablespoons - Maple syrup
  7. 1/4 cups - canola oil
  8. 1/4 cups - cilantro chopped (optional)
  9. - fresh chilis to taste chopped
  10. 1 pounds - firm tofu If firm tofu is not available, press between 2 plates with something heavy on top. It will expel liquid
  11. 3 cloves - garlic finely chopped


1. Press tofu for at least 30 minutes. Put between 2 plates with a weight on top. (I have also left out this step. Just buy the extra firm tofu.) Chop finely – ginger, garlic, chilies. Set aside.

2. Marinade: whisk juice, maple syrup, soy sauce, lemon juice and oil. Add chopped ginger, etc. & cilantro.

3. Place block of tofu on side. Cut into 3 slices lengthwise. Cut slabs into triangles or squares (whatever best fits your dish). Place tofu into baking dish in a single layer. Pour marinade over tofu. Marinate overnight. (or several hours – best overnight)

4. Bake uncovered 40-45 minutes until golden brown and most marinade is absorbed.
