Marinade time 1 hr
Course lunch
Servings 8 slices


  • 200 grams extra firm plain or smoked tofu
  • 2 tbsp soya sauce or tamari or coconut amines depending on your needs
  • 1 heaped tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika


  • Mix the marinade ingredients together into a small bowl or plastic tub with a lid.
  • Cut the tofu into 8 equal slices then place them in the marinade. Turn them over to make sure both sides are coated.
  • Leave to marinade for at least an hour if possible, turning from time to time.
  • When you're ready, either pre-heat the oven to 180ÂșC and place the slices on a non-stick baking tray and bake for 20 minutes, turning them over after 10 minutes.
  • Or place the slices in a quality non-stick frying pan over a medium heat (no oil needed) and 'fry' for 2 minutes. Turn over and 'fry' the other side until lightly browned.
  • Use straight away whilst hot or leave to cool and keep in a container in the fridge until ready.
