Recipe Ingredients for Mango ginger tofu

3 cloves garlic
1 hot chili pepper
1/4 cup fresh ginger, roughly chopped
2 teaspoons canola oil
2 mangos
1/4 cup agave syrup
1 cup stock
1 fresh black pepper to taste
1 dash of salt
1/4 teaspoon allspice
2 tablespoon rice vinegar (use apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar if you dont have rice)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 cup orange juice
500 g firm tofu
1 mango, sliced in long thin slices
1 red pepper, seeded and cut in long thin slices

Recipe Directions for Mango ginger tofu

  1. Make the marinade

  2. In a medium sauce pan, heat the oil, add garlic, ginger and jalepeno, saute on medium heat 7 minutes, being careful not to burn the garlic. Add 2 chopped mangos and saute 5 minutes

  3. Add pure maple syrup and wine, cover and simmer 35 minutes; Uncover and simmer 5 more minutes.

  4. Add orange juice, vinegar, lime, black pepper, allspice and salt; Add mixture to blender, puree until smooth.

  5. Prepare the tofu

  6. Cut tofu blocks into 8 slabs each. Place tofu in marinade in a sealable plastic bag or tupperware. Marinate in the fridge for an hour and up to overnight.

  7. Preheat oven to 375

  8. Reserve about half of the marinate. Lay marinated tofu in a single layer in baking pan. Cook for 20 minutes. Flip tofu over and add more marinade. Dredge peppers and sliced mangos in marinade and add them to pan. Cook another 15 minutes.

  9. Heat up remaining marinade in a sauce pan and put in a bowl on the table (or floor, where ever you're eating) so guests (or room mates, or who ever is eating) can pour it over the tofu. Serve over jasmine rice, with a steamed vegetable, such as aspararus or broccoli.
