Preparation Time:
Cooking Time:
4 portions
Metric Imperial


  • 1 extra-firm tofu
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 tray white mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, minced
  • 1 ciabatta baguette, cut in 4
  • 3 oz creamy goat cheese (or other cheese of your choice)
  • 2 cups baby spinach


  • 2 tablespoons sodium-reduced soy or tamari sauce
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons Red Star nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (preferably dark syrup for its rich flavour)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sambal oelek


  1. Cut tofu in half across its width, then each half into 3 thick slices.
  2. Blend the marinade ingredients in a large bowl or airtight freezer bag. Marinate tofu slices 1 hour at room temperature or several hours in the fridge.
  3. Remove tofu from marinade and squeeze between sheets of paper towel. Coat them in cornstarch and shake off excess.
  4. Heat half the oil in a large pan. Brown mushrooms and onion, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until they’re cooked. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
  5. Heat the rest of the oil in a pan and brown the tofu slices 5 minutes on each side or until they’re crusty and golden.
  6. Put cheese on ciabattas, then slices of tofu, and cover with the mushroom-onion mixture. Top with baby spinach.

Resting time: 1 hour or more

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.
