Preparation Time:
Cooking Time:
4 portions
Metric Imperial


  • 1 bloc (1 lb) extra-firm tofu
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (preferably dark syrup for its robust flavour)
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tbsp black chia seeds
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp chipotle powder (smoked Mexican chile) or to taste
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 burger buns
  • Toppings, your choice: tomato slices, cucumber slices, lettuce, etc.


  1. Cut the tofu into 1.25 cm (1/2 in) slices, place them on a plate between several layers of absorbent paper, and press lightly to remove excess water. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, maple syrup, ketchup, vinegar, chia seeds, garlic, pepper, and chipotle powder. Add the tofu slices, cover and allow to marinate at least 5 minutes at room temperature.
  3. Preheat the barbecue to medium and oil the grill.
  4. Remove tofu slices from the marinade and reserve it. Grill tofu for 5 minutes, flip and cook another 5 minutes. Grill the buns at the same time.
  5. Combine the reserved marinade with the mayonnaise and brush the burger buns generously with it.
  6. Garnish grilled maple tofu burgers with your choice of toppings.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
