Maple-Soy Tofu


Travis has loved tofu nearly since he began eating solids, so I’m always looking for ways to make it new and different. This sweet-savory glaze gets the toddler thumbs up. You can cut the tofu into small cubes or leave in slabs or triangles for older children.


  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 pound extra-firm tofu
  1. Combine the soy sauce, maple syrup, and sesame oil in a small bowl. Drizzle over the tofu cubes and let stand for about 10 minutes to marinate.
  2. Cook the tofu in a skillet over medium-high heat for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let cool slightly before serving.

Add rice and wilted chopped spinach to complete the meal!
