1 ripe mango, peeled, small dice
1 chipotle chili in adobo sauce, seeded
2 garlic cloves, smashed
1" piece fresh ginger, peeled, grated
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup water
2 tbl ketchup
2 tbl maple syrup
2 tbl chopped cilantro
1 tbl soy sauce
1 tsp salt
1 lb extra firm tofu, drained and pressed, 1/2" cubes

Combine all of the ingredients(except the tofu) in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour over the tofu and marinate for at least an hour to as long as possible.
Preheat the oven to 425.
Bake the tofu on a greased baking sheet (reserve the marinade) for 45 minutes, tossing once half way.
Bring the marinade to a simmer and cook for a couple minutes to heat through, adding some water to thin it out if necessary. Toss with the cooked tofu.

  1. Delicious! Really delicious. My girlfriend asked me to cook it again next time we have guests. I added a little cumin to the beans, which worked pretty well. Thanks!
