Portions: 2



  • 1 pack (8oz) extra firm tofu, drained and cut into cubes
  • 1 medium head red cabbage, chopped
  • 2 red bell peppers, chopped
  • 1/3 cup green onions, chopped

Tofu Marinade

  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup from Canada
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 tsp garlic
  • 1/4 tsp ginger paste (or powder)

Salad Dressing

  • 3 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1.5 tbsp pure maple syrup from Canada
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar


  1. Place tofu between two towels and press down with something heavy (i.e skillet, pots and pans, etc). Let moisture drain for 25 minutes before cutting into cubes.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine ingredients for marinade. Add cubed tofu into a shallow baking dish and pour marinade over to completely cover the tofu. Combine until evenly coated and allow to marinate for 30 minutes.
  3. Heat oil in a large cooking pan over medium heat – add tofu. Cook 3-4 minutes per side until golden. Add remaining marinade and toss until evenly coated. Remove from the skillet.
  4. Combine ingredients for salad dressing and toss with remaining ingredients for salad. Serve with tofu cubes on top.
