Maple tofu appetizers
Updated: Mar 5
If there is one maple caramelised tofu recipe you have to try it's definitely this one!
Ingredients for the marinade
2 tbsp olive oil
80 ml orange juice
65 ml happy maple, goût robuste
2 tbsp cider vinegar
1 minced garlic
2 tbsp fresh ginger, finely minced
In an airtight container or resealable freezer bag, combine all marinade ingredients, add tofu cubes, and refrigerate for 1 to 12 hours.
Ingredients for the tofu
350g block firm tofu, cut into 2.5 cm cubes
A few leaves of kale, blanched for 3 minutes in boiling salted water
Remove tofu from marinade and drain well on absorbent paper. Reserve the marinade.
Roll one third of tofu cubes in chia seeds without coating all their sides, and set aside.
Place another third of tofu cubes into the steak spices to coat one side of each, and set aside.
Partially roll the rest of the cubes, individually, in the blanched kale leaves, and secure with toothpicks.
In a large non-stick pan, over medium-high heat, brown the tofu cubes, a few at a time, in the oil for about 1 minute on each side. Repeat with all cubes, remove the toothpicks, and arrange nicely on a serving plate.
Meanwhile, in a saucepan over medium heat, reduce the reserved marinade by half. Pour into a dip container and serve with the tofu treats.
