The sweet and salty combination of maple syrup and soy sauce makes this maple glazed tofu so delicious. Adding pineapple juice adds a fruity yet sweet flavor and also helps make the frosting wonderfully sticky.

Tofu is one of the best sources of vegan protein because it contains all nine amino acids, making it a complete protein. It also absorbs flavor very well thanks to its porous texture that marinates beautifully.
The one thing to remember about preparing tofu is that it has a high water content, and if that excess water is removed, your tofu will benefit by being crispier. We pressed the tofu between tea towels, but you can also use a tofu press or two plates, being careful not to break the tofu.
This maple glazed tofu is delicious served with a crisp salad for a light vegan lunch, or with rice and steamed vegetables for a healthy vegan dinner.
