I love Kathy Patalsky. Not only is her blog awesome, but she seems like such a genuinely nice person. And the food she cooks- OH MY! She is so creative and seems never to be at a loss for her next recipe. She truly cooks with grace.
I have made many of her dishes in the past, I think my favorite is her cashew nut "cheese" which I use in lasagna regularly.
Today I wanted quick and easy so I tried her Maple-Tamari Seared Tofu. So easy and really delicious. I changed up the quantities slightly, mostly because when I was cooking my computer (and the recipe) were upstairs.
Seared Tamari Maple Tofu
2 slices tofu (cut into cubes and halved into triangles)
1/4 cup tamari
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp liquid smoke
2 tbs olive oil
Mix the tamari, maple syrup and liquid smoke in a bowl. Add the tofu and allow to marniate about half an hour.
Heat a skillet over high heat and add the tofu. Allow the tofu to sear for about two minutes, flip and allow to cook for another two minutes. While cooking you may spoons some of the marinade over the tofu to create a glaze.
Plate and serve. Simple and delicious!
