The best crispy tofu ๐Ÿ˜‹

-3 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
-1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
-1 1/2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
-1 teaspoon garlic powder
-14 ounces extra firm tofu, pressed and cut into cubes
-5-6 tablespoons cornstarch
-1 tablespoon oil of choice

-In a shallow bowl, whisk together soy sauce, maple syrup, and garlic powder. -Add the tofu and toss gently to coat, arranging the tofu in a single layer in the bowl. Let marinate 15-20 minutes, flipping the tofu once.
-Transfer the tofu to a zip top freezer bag, discarding any leftover marinade. Add cornstarch to the bag one tablespoon at a time, zipping it up and shaking around to coat the tofu entirely. You have enough when thereโ€™s a thin white layer of cornstarch covering the tofu.
-Heat oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the tofu and cook 2-3 minutes per side until golden and crispy.
