• 1 Block(15oz.) Extra firm tofu, pressed
  • 1/2 Cup Maple syrup
  • 1/4 Cup Brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ginger, dried
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Make sure you press your tofu before hand for at least 15 minutes, but the longer the better. 
  2. Now, slice your tofu through the side to make "steaks". Cut into 2-3 slices, depending on how thick you want them. Sprinkle both sides with a few pinches of salt and a pinch of pepper. 
  3. Now, score your tofu steaks on one side. Slice in a crisscross pattern over the entire piece of tofu. Slice pretty deep, but make sure you don't go all the way through. 
  4. Place the pieces of tofu onto a baking sheet sprayed with non stick spray. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Flip the tofu after 15 minutes. 
  5. While the tofu is baking, make the glaze. Combine the maple syrup, brown sugar, mustard, cinnamon, ginger and a pinch of salt in a small sauce pan. 
  6. Heat on medium, whisk everything together. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low. Continue to whisk, and simmer for another minute until everything has dissolved and has slightly thickened. Remove from heat. It will thicken more as it cools. 
  7. Once the tofu has baked for 30 minutes, make sure it is slightly brown and firm and getting a little crisp. Remove from the oven, reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees. 
  8. Now, starting with the side of the tofu that has not been scored(cut), generously brush the glaze on top, and the sides. Return to the oven and bake for 5 more minutes.  
  9. Then remove from the oven again, flip the tofu over to the side that has been scored. If the cuts have baked back together a bit, cut back into them, then brush the tofu with more glaze, making sure to get the glaze all the way down into the cuts through the tofu. 
  10. Bake for another 5 minutes, or until the glaze on the tofu has browned. The glaze will slightly melt off the tofu and on to the pan, this is normal. I like to scoop the super caramelized glaze off the pan and put it on top of the tofu.
  11. Once you remove the tofu from the oven, brush the tops with more glaze. Then serve.
