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.
