Maple Walnut Tofu

This is a little bit wrong. It’s tofu—healthy healthy tofu—but it tastes like candy. YUM!

(Very loosely adapted from Everyday with Rachael Ray)

1 cup walnut halves
1 package extra firm tofu, drained, patted dry and cubed
1 tbsp EVOO
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
¼ cup chicken stock (or another ¼ cup apple cider vinegar)
½ cup maple syrup

1. Preheat oven to 325º.

2. Spread walnuts on a rimmed baking sheet and toast until fragrant, 10-12 minutes.

3. Heat EVOO in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the tofu to the skillet and cook until browned, about 10 minutes. Remove tofu and set aside.

4. Add vinegar, chicken stock and maple syrup to the skillet. Cook until the sauce thickens.

5. Add tofu and walnuts to the skillet. Stir to coat with the maple sauce. Enjoy.
