adapted from The Garden of Vegan


  • 1 lb medium firm tofu, chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/4 tsp dried chili, or 1 tsp Asian chili sauce
  • 1/8 cup maple syrup
  • 1/8 cup Braggs (note: I used soy sauce)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup dry roasted almonds, chopped (garnish)


In a medium saucepan on medium-high heat, saute the tofu in oil until browned. Reduce heat to medium-low and add the garlic, ginger, and chili. Saute for 5 minutes. Add the maple syrup, Braggs (or soy sauce), and lemon juice. Cover and cook until the liquid has evaporated. Garnish with almonds.
