  • 1 package firm tofu⁣ (400g)
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch⁣
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (plus extra to fry)⁣
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup⁣
  • 1 tablespoon ginger (I used a paste)⁣
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar⁣
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder⁣


  1. Press the tofu around an hour before cooking to allow all the water to drain⁣- this is an important step to ensure the tofu becomes crispy!
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°F
  3. Slice the tofu into small cubes.
  4. Toss the tofu in the cornstarch to evenly coat all cubes⁣.
  5. Over a medium heat, heat some coconut oil in a pan then add in the coated tofu, turning a few times until all sides turn golden⁣.
  6. In a bowl or blender add the maple syrup, coconut oil, ginger, apple cider vinegar, and garlic powder, and mix/blend until smooth.⁣
  7. Transfer the tofu into a bowl and pour the sauce over it to coat all cubes evenly (don't get rid of the remaining sauce!)⁣.
  8. Transfer the tofu into a baking tray and pour what’s left of the sauce over the cubes⁣.
  9. Bake for 15 minutes (or until the sauce is bubbling).⁣
  10. Serve!
