Who wants a taste from the island with this Jamaican Maple Jerk Tofu!? My parents are both from the islands so believe me when I tell you if you close your eyes while eating this dish you’ll feel like you’re on a vacation in Jamaica 🇯🇲 🌴. Let me know in the comments if you would like to see more bowls like this? Tag someone(vegan/non vegan) you know would love this meal! 😋
2 blocks of firm tofu with the water drained out.
Use your hands to break your tofu into medium size pieces.
Dip each piece into corn flour, make sure they are evenly coated all around.
Fry all your pieces in medium hot oil until crisp.
Once crisp, set them aside on paper towel to drain excess oil.
Maple Jerk Sauce:
1/4 cup chopped ginger root skin peeled off
1/2 scotch bonnet pepper without the seeds
1/2 tsp ground white pepper
8 strands of fresh thyme
3 garlic cloves
1/2 small white onion
4Tbsp 100% real Maple syrup
1tsp ground Jamaican allspice
2Tbsp BBQ Sauce(I used a smoky sweet one from my local grocery store)
Juice from half a lime
2Tbsp caribbean browning sauce(optional to darken your sauce) or use dark soya sauce
*Put all of the above ingredients into a blender & blend until silky*
Pour your mix from the blender into a pot on low heat and let it all cook for 10minutes with the pot cover on. Stir every 2 minutes.
Turn your pot off after 10minutes and let your sauce cool to room temperature.
Once at room temperature, mix your tofu pieces into the sauce until they are fully coated! 🛎 Serve with rice of your choice.
In my bowl is Jollof rice & avo! Enjoy!
