Maple Tofu

Maple Tofu

I had the idea for this recipe during the sugaring season. I was dying to taste the maple syrup I bought earlier in the week and wondered how to showcase it with what I had in the fridge. I love tofu and always have one or two bricks ready to use. So I combined the two to make a dream come true. Believe me, even when it is no longer sugar time, you will want to eat this delicious, rather healthy dish.
