Ingredients

7 oz Nasoya® Organic Firm Tofu (half a container)
1 heaping cup diced butternut squash (cut into 1/2-inch cubes)
1 cup dry quinoa
1 head of lettuce for wraps
Handful pecans
Handful dried cranberries
3 chives, green parts chopped (discard white)
1 small apple, peeled, cored, and chopped

For the marinade:

2 tbsp maple syrup thinned with 1/2 tbsp water
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

  1. Sandwich the tofu between paper towels and two plates. Place something heavy (for example, a jar of tomato sauce) on the top plate to put pressure on the tofu. Let it sit for 1 to 3 hours so that the water can drain from the tofu. If you’re in a time crunch, 30 minutes will suffice, although the tofu will absorb the marinade much better if properly drained.
  2. Mix together the marinade ingredients. Cut the tofu into ½-inch cubes and place in marinade with butternut squash. Cover and let it soak for at least 30 minutes (3+ hours is ideal).
  3. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread tofu/squash mixture onto it. Save the leftover marinade.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, toss, and bake for another 15 minutes. Tofu should look golden brown. You may have to toss again and bake for 5 to 10 additional minutes, depending on your oven.
  6. Meanwhile, cook the quinoa. Add 1 cup dry quinoa to 1 1/2 cups boiling water. Bring to simmer for 10 to 12 minutes, or until quinoa is easily fluffed with a fork. When it’s done, mix in any residual marinade.
  7. Add the squash, tofu, pecans, cranberries, chives, and apple to the quinoa and mix together.
  8. Serve with a leaf of lettuce as a wrap.

    Cornstarch holds the key to crispiness! Tossing tofu in cornstarch and giving it a light coating helps it take on a truly crispy crust when pan-searing or frying.
