Maple Tofu and Vegetable Saute

This colorful, refreshing and nourishing dish is published the second edition of my cookbook L’Érable, C’est bon en sirop! It’s one of my niece Valérie Gagnon’s favorite dishes to cook tofu. She enjoys exploring new ways to prepare healthy foods and it is with great enthusiasm that I share her recipe which she frequently prepares for her little family.
