Golden Baked Tofu


I improvised this recipe while in Florida on vacation. I had a limited selection of what to work with but I am now in love with this recipe. I think there are two keys to this deliciousness: golden maple syrup and fresh orange juice. When we bought our supplies for our week at a condo, it was the golden maple syrup from Whole Foods that turned out to be a highlight. It’s light, sweet and delicious. And now I look for it whenever I am in Whole Foods.
