Wasabi Mint Maple Glazed Tofu

by Edward Daniel

Wasabi Lemongrass Maple Glazed Tofu is one of those quick dishes you can let marinade before, return from work and simply rustle up for a comfortable meal. I add cardamoms to give this dish an extra layer of flavour.

Order my first self-published book, “Essence: The Beginner’s Guide to Veganism” part of the three-part Circle of Food series. My second book “Presence: The Ascending Vegan” – which explores how to maintain a vegan practice is out in 2027 – I have compiled all the chapters including recipes.

Going strong since 2013.

  • 00g tofu, cut into cubes (no more than 1cm in height)
  • 3 cardamoms
  • 1 lemongrass
  • ¾ tsp wasabi powder
  • 4tbs lemon juice
  • 4tbs maple syrup
  • Few sprigs of mint
  • Oil for frying
  • Garnishing
  • Sesame seeds


  1. Make the marinade by deseeding the cardamoms. Put the cardamoms and lemongrass and whizz to fine consistency – do not worry about having shards of lemongrass filaments, it just adds to the texture.
  2. Place the grounded cardamom lemongrass into a mixing bowl. Add the wasabi powder, lemon juice and maple syrup. Chop some mint and add to the marinade.
  3. Placed the cubed tofu into a low shall dish and drizzle the marinade. Cover and leave overnight and the following morning turn over the tofu.
  4. When ready to serve, place some oil into a frying pan and sauté the tofu each side for no more than two to three minutes, until the tofu turns a nice golden colour.
  5. Garnish the tofu with sesame seeds and serve with the remaining marinade not absorbed.
