Ingredients

  • 14 oz block firm non-GMO tofu , drained and pressed
  • 2 cups of shaved Brussels sprouts*
  • 1 TB olive or coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp of salt and pepper

MARINADE

SAUCE

  • 3 TB tamari (or soy sauce if not gf)
  • 1 TB rice wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1 TB real maple syrup (grade A or B)
  • 3 TB veggie broth or water
  • 1-1.5 TB corn starch (depending on how sticky you like your tofu)
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1 TB red pepper flakes (or less if you're not as into spicy)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. After tofu is pressed, cut into 1" cubes.

  3. Mix all the marinade ingredients and marinate cubes for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes.
  5. When tofu is almost done, add 1 TB of olive oil to pan along with Brussels sprouts and cook for about 3-5 minutes until done to your liking.
  6. Once tofu is ready, mix all of the sauce ingredients in saucepan and heat on very low heat for about 1-2 minutes. Take off heat as soon as it begins to bubble slightly. If it gets too thick, add a little more veggie broth or water. 

  7. Coat tofu with sauce and serve with Brussels sprouts.

Recipe Notes

To shave Brussels sprouts you can use a mandolin or pulse them in batches in a food processor. You can also cut them finely. I've begun to see stores selling them pre-shaved as well.
