1/2 lemon, juice of
2 cloves garlic, minced

1Add the tofu to a large bowl together with the tamari, rice vinegar, lemon juice, and garlic. Stir together really well to combine and marinade for at least 30 minutes, or preferably for 4+hours/overnight
2Around 10 minutes before you finish marinading the tofu, preheat the oven to 200 degrees C/400 F. Spread the tofu cubes evenly over a sheet of parchment paper and bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, flipping all the pieces after around the 15-minute mark.
3Combine the plant based milk, maple syrup, sesame seeds, ketchup and peanut butter in a mixing bowl. Whisk together thoroughly. In a separate, smaller bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and water.
4Transfer the tofu to a non-stick frying pan. Pour in the sauce and the cornstarch slurry and stir together over a medium heat until the sauce thickens. Serve.

I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
