Sesame-Maple Roasted Tofu

This quick and healthy dinner pairs creamy tofu and crispy snap peas with a tahini-maple sauce. Serve with udon noodles.

Serves 4

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 45 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 14-ounce b extra-firm water-packed tofu, rinsed, patted dry and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon tahini, (see Tip)
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 3 cups sugar snap peas, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Step 2

Toss tofu, onion, canola oil, sesame oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Spread on a large baking sheet and roast until the tofu is lightly golden on top and the onions are browning in spots, 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 3

Whisk tahini, soy sauce, maple syrup and vinegar in a small dish until combined. Remove the tofu from the oven, add snap peas and drizzle with the maple sauce; stir to combine. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Return to the oven and continue roasting until the peas are crisp-tender, 8 to 12 minutes more.
