WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

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

Ingredients
Prep: 20 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes
  • 1 14-ounce block
    extra-firm water-packed tofu, rinsed, patted dry and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 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
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450°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

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.
