• 1 14-ounce blockextra-firm water-packed tofu, rinsed, patted dry and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon tahini, (see Tip)
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 3 cups sugar snap peas, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

2. Toss tofu, onion, canola oil, sesame oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Spread on a large baking sheet and roast until the tofu is lightly golden on top and the onions are browning in spots, 15 to 20 minutes.

3. Whisk tahini, soy sauce, maple syrup and vinegar in a small dish until combined. Remove the tofu from the oven, add snap peas and drizzle with the maple sauce; stir to combine. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Return to the oven and continue roasting until the peas are crisp-tender, 8 to 12 minutes more.

 

Tip:

Tahini is a smooth, thick paste made from ground sesame seeds. Look for it in the Middle Eastern section or near other nut butters in large supermarkets.
