  • Place tofu onto a plate and place another plate on top. Set a 3- to 5-pound weight on top. Press tofu for 20 to 30 minutes; drain and discard the accumulated liquid. Dice into bite-sized cubes.

  • Combine soy sauce, 3 tablespoons sesame oil, maple syrup, green onions, red pepper powder, sesame seeds, garlic, and liquid smoke in a bowl. Fold in tofu and cover with plastic wrap. Place in the refrigerator to soak for no longer than 1 hour. Drain tofu, reserving marinade. Spread tofu evenly on a baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook lo mein noodles in boiling water, stirring occasionally, until noodles are tender yet firm to the bite, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain.

  • Combine coconut oil and 1 tablespoon sesame oil in a wok or saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute onion until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Add broccoli coleslaw mix and coleslaw mix; saute until wilted, about 3 minutes more. Reduce heat to medium-low; add cooked noodles, baked tofu, and reserved marinade. Simmer until heated through and all liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook's Note:

Substitute coconut nectar for the maple syrup, if desired.
