  • 600g Extra Firm, Tofu-Pressed
  • 40ml maple syrup
  • 40ml soy sauce

  2. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and add your oil. Sear off your tofu on both sides until crispy.
  3. In a Tupperware, mix your marinade of maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic and red wine.
  4. Add tofu to the marinade for around 15 minutes and cover with a lid.
  5. Once marinated, add your tofu to an oiled baking tray and cook for a further 20 minutes. For optimal flavour, cook alongside your roasties or veggies!
