The whole family loved it. I made a few changes: first I marinated the tofu in soy sauce for a few hours before cooking. I pre-baked the tofu to give it a meatier texture. I used canned pineapple tidbits for the pineapple juice then threw the tidbits into the pan at the end of cooking. Next time I will saute onions and peppers to add to it. It was a winner with all family members!

This was my first time cooking tofu and my family loved it. I cooked it with sliced mushrooms a quartered white onion and a sliced green bell pepper. I then mixed fettuccine noodles with fresh baby spinach and topped it with the maple glazed tofu/veggies. I added a little bit of hot sauce to balance the sweetness of the maple. I thought it was a little too sweet and needed something to balance it out so I added a tablespoon of sriracha hot chili sauce. My family loved it and gobbled the whole bowl up.

Excellent recipe. We just made it for Easter for the vegetarians in the family (i.e. me LOL). We followed some of the other reviewers suggestions like marinating the tofu in soy sauce adding onions and pineapple tidbits. We also added whole cooked carrots and asparagus to the mix. It was sooooo good. I was worried it would be too sweet also but I feel the mustard and soy sauce balanced it out. This one is a keeper!

I used a little less mustard (didn't measure it) marinated the tofu in soy sauce and used a 14 oz package of tofu. I increased the liquid ingredients by 1/2 and had alot left in the pan so I don't think I needed to. I just wanted the tofu to top a salad. I could see how it would be good with veggies over rice. We did enjoy it but I probably wouldn't make it again...too many calories. Was a nice recipe to try and very easy.

LOVED IT! I added a tiny drop of liquid smoke seasoning and a tiny drop of sesame oil and this made it absolutely perfect. Thanks for a great recipe!

Was a decent recipe. The glaze tasted a bit too much of mustard when I made it so ended up about doubling the soy and adding a tsp of Worcestershire sauce and a bit more syrup. Though the mustard I used was Dijon mustard with whole seeds in it and that might have been the problem. Next time I will be using half the mustard and adding the Worcestershire again. Definitely worth a try if you like tofu.

Delicious! I marinated the tofu in soy sauce for about 15 mins and used orange juice instead of pineapple (I'm allergic). I also added a bunch of steamed veggies to the glaze just before it was done reducing. Came out great!

Very tasty recipe I felt compelled to add shredded ginger which perfected the sauce. There was enough sauce here for 2 bricks of tofu so next time I'd make a half recipe for one brick. Sliced green onions also ought to be sliced on top before serving. Very good!
