  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
  • Drain and press tofu for 30 to 60 minutes. Slice into 1/4-inch rectangles.

Notes

How to press tofu:
Put drained tofu on a large plate between layers of paper towels or wrapped in a clean tea towel.
Place a weight, like a can of food or an empty glass food storage container, on top to press out moisture.
Let sit for an hour.
