Miso-Maple Tofu

A while back I somehow acquired a cookzine called "Kitchen Witch: Vegan Magic" filled with unique vegan recipes. One recipe really stood out, but it never had quantities, just of list of ingredients. I've been able to find a good flavor combination of all the ingredients every time I made it, but finally wrote down my version so I could share it. I made this during my last family visit and served it along with stuffing, roasted potatoes and a mustard greens dish. Hope you enjoy it as my family and I did.

Miso-Maple Tofu

1 1/2 blocks Tofu*
1 cup Walnuts
2 Tb Miso
1 Tb Maple Syrup
1 Tb Sesame Oil
2 Tb Tamari

Cut the tofu into 1/4 inch slabs. Combine the sesame oil and tamari. Coat the tofu in the oil/tamari combination and place on baking sheet. If any oil/tamari is left, pour over top of tofu. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, flip tofu and bake an addition 10 minutes.

In a food processor, combine the walnuts, miso and maple syrup until it is a paste-like consistency. Spread the paste evenly over the baked tofu. Bake an addition 15 minutes.

*High protein tofu from Trader Joes is the perfect size.
