Taken from vegandad’s website (for link, look right). This recipe kicks ass because it’s spicy and sweet and loves to sit next to a bed of your favorite greens.

1 package extra firm tofu, sliced in triangles (I use twin oaks)
1/2 C chili sauce
1/4 C maple syrup, or packed brown sugar
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp chili powder

Pan fry your tofu triangles in the oil until golden brown on both sides on a skillet. Mix all other ingredients in a bowl until smooth. Turn the heat off on the skillet and pour the sauce in. Toss with the tofu until it’s all coated. Let it sit on the hot pan so the sugar can cook for a few minutes.

Serve over brown rice or quinoa with your favorite green. This time it happened to be some yummy kale. Pretty simple and delicious!
