This easy sweet and spicy Maple Chipotle Baked Tofu is crispy on the outside. Perfect for a salad or sandwich.
Here I’ve combined maple syrup and adobo sauce to create my favorite flavor combination – sweet and spicy. Baking tofu is a great hands-off way to prepare tofu. After draining and pressing your tofu and preparing a marinade, there’s not a lot to do.
How to Make Maple Chipotle Baked Tofu
First, you drain and press the tofu to get the water out.
Next, combine maple syrup and adobo sauce (from chipotle in adobo. By using the adobo sauce instead of the chipotle peppers themselves, the tofu isn’t too spicy.
If you want it spicier, use a chipotle pepper instead. You’ll just need to throw it in a food processor, which is one reason I used the adobo sauce.
It’s easier throwing the sauce in a bowl with maple syrup then dealing with mixing in the food processor.
You then bake the tofu until it gets crispy on the outside.
Baking tofu is a whole lot cheaper than store-bought and you can control the ingredients. Many packaged baked tofu products have gluten, so making your own is a great way for those of us who are gluten intolerant to be able to enjoy it.
There’s so many different flavors that you can make, many of which you won’t find in the stores. Customize the flavors to your liking, like I have done here.
