Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (50 votes)

This quick and healthy dinner pairs creamy tofu and crispy snap peas with a tahini-maple sauce. Serve with udon noodles.

"This was really delicious. Definitely double the sauce. It's really good. I poured it over the tofu, onions, fresh green beans, and sliced red pepper. I think the suggestion to marinate the tofu for a while in the sauce is a good idea...

This was really, really good. We made a few changes - sprinkled 5-spice powder - maybe 1 t - on the tofu before baking; broiled tofu and onions to hasten cooking and give a little crispness to the tofu; added carrots; after made sauce, mixed veggies in the sauce and let them sit while tofu was cooking and then roasted it so the vegetables were coated.
We served this with brown rice noodles, which was a great combo.


This came together quickly and I will make it again. Should have marinated the tofu in advance, will do so next time. I doubled the recipe-it really doesn't serve four as listed-and found that the sauce was skimpy and barely coated the tofu and snap peas (expensive but delicious). So, next time more sauce and marinate before baking.

quick, easy, tasty ingredients
Quick, Easy and Delicious!

We really liked this recipe. It went together quickly and the flavors blended very nicely. I would follow the other reviewers suggestion to marinate the tofu, as well as double the sauce. It was great the way it was, but that would make it even better. I used udon noodles and green beans.

staple dish in my home

I absolutely love this recipe. This was the first tofu recipe I had made. I'm not the greatest cook but this is such a simple recipe to make. I will add a bit of brown rice to make it more filling but it can stand alone. I follow the recipe exactly how it's noted.

flavorful, easy tofu recipe
Really yummy!

This was really great. I marinated the tofu and onions in the sesame oil mixture for a couple of hours first, and I think it enhanced the flavor of the tofu. The combination of sesame, soy and tahini made the flavor really interesting. A really satisfying and healthy dish- I'll be making it again.

Great flavor
