Sticky Maple Sesame Tofu

Please note that the suggested amount of thickener for the sauce is 1 to 1.5 teaspoons. Start by adding only 1 teaspoon to the sauce, and only add the extra 1/2 teaspoon if you find it is too thin and it requires further thickening. The tofu from Aldi is the perfect texture for this.



500gm block of firm tofu
2 tablespoons of maple syrup (40mls)
2 tablespoons Thai seasoning sauce
1 clove of garlic sliced
2 tsp sesame oil
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1-1.5 tsp tapioca or corn flour
2-4 tablespoons of water
2 tablespoons rice bran or other low flavour oil (for stir frying)
1 tablespoons of sesame seeds


  1. Place the two tablespoons of maple syrup in a 1/3 size measuring cup, then fill the rest up with water.
  2. Cut tofu into cubes. 
  3. Place all ingredients except for tofu, sesame seeds and rice bran oil in a bowl. Process with a stick blender.
  4. Add tofu and gently mix through. Allow to sit for at least 10 minutes.
  5. Heat a large wok, and add oil.
  6. Stir fry tofu until it has become a nice golden colour.
  7. Add marinade and allow sauce to thicken.
  8. Adjust sweetness or saltiness and serve with a sprinkling of sesame seeds.
