Chipotle Maple-Glazed Tofu Burger

Sweet, spicy, and smokey, all the yums in a single bun.

This mouthwatering recipe will take some planning and patience, but the end result is worth every minute! You’ll want to prep the ingredients the night before to work the marinade into the tofu.

In order to maintain this as a vegan recipe, be sure to use organic maple syrup. While maple syrup is naturally vegan, the manufacturing processes can sometimes alter it’s vegan status. To be safe alway choose organic maple syrup.

This recipe calls for baking, alternatively, the tofu could be fried for a crispy texture, and shorter cooking time. If you do decide to fry, be very careful as the syrup in the glaze could easily burn.

We suggest using Daiya Smoked Gouda Style Slices, however, any non-dairy cheese could work.
Maybe swiss…
