I have seen several recipes for tofu seasoned with maple syrup but was not pleased with the outcome. I decided to experiment on my own and am extremely pleased with the results.

Maple tofu is great in this dish but also works really well on its own.

In this recipe decided to pair it with some basic zucchini and oven-fried sweet potatoes.

ENJOY!
