Ingredients

  • 1/2 Block Extra Firm Tofu
  • 2 Tablespoons Liquid Aminos
  • 1 Teaspoon Liquid Smoke
  • 3 Tablespoons Maple Syrup, divided
  • 8 Fresh Figs, halved lengthwise
  • 2 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar

Instructions

  1. Press the tofu using a tofu press or heavy pot for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Slice the tofu into thin, flat strips.
  3. Place in a glass container along with the liquid aminos, liquid smoke, and 1 tablespoon maple syrup. Let marinate for 10 minutes.
  4. Transfer the tofu (reserving any remaining marinade) to a non-stick pan and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, until all sides are browned. Set aside.
  5. Add the fig to the pan cut side down along with the reserved marinade, remaining maple syrup, and red wine vinegar. Cook until the figs are soft and caramelized, about 5 minutes.
  6. Remove the figs from the pan, leaving any liquid in the pan. Arrange figs cut side up on a plate and place the tofu pieces on top of each fig.
  7. Drizzle the syrup over the figs. Enjoy!
