Let’s Get Cooking:

  1. Bake That Tofu: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Slice your pressed tofu into bite-sized cubes. In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, soy sauce, maple syrup, garlic powder, and smoked paprika. Toss the tofu cubes in this marinade like they’re in a mosh pit at a rock concert.
  2. Into the Oven: Place the tofu cubes on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until they’re golden and slightly crispy.
  3. Salsa Time: While the tofu is doing its thing in the oven, toss together the diced peaches, red onion, jalapeño, lime juice, and cilantro. Salt to taste, then set aside. It’s summer in a bowl, baby!
  4. Top it Off: Once your tofu has the crispy edges of a Vin Diesel car chase scene, remove it from the oven. Spoon that scrumptious peach salsa over the top.

Wine & Beer Pairings:

Wine:

  • Riesling: A light, aromatic Riesling with a touch of sweetness perfectly balances the spiciness of the salsa and the earthy tofu.

Beer:

  • Wheat Beer: A refreshing wheat beer goes hand-in-hand with the summery vibes of this dish.

And there you have it! A tofu dish that doesn’t just walk the red carpet—it owns it. Cheers and bon appétit! 🍷🍻
