Is There a Vegan Alternative to Honey?

Yes, you can substitute out the honey in this recipe for agave nectar or maple syrup. I prefer agave nectar, it’s my go-to kitchen sweetener because it’s absolutely delicious, and buying organic agave is crazy inexpensive online (compared to other organic sweeteners).  It also bakes well, so I like to add it to my baked goods.

How Do I Find Good Honey?

This is one of my favorite raw honey recipes! You can browse all of my honey recipes here on my site.  As a beekeeper, I love trying out new favorite honey recipes. Nothing is sweeter than using your own honey 🙂  If you’re looking to buy honey I’d recommend searching for  local beekeeper in your area.  That way you can have delicious local honey and also support an apiary… get it from the source.

How Do I Make Honey Baked Tofu?

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, line a sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the tofu, corn starch, garlic powder, onion powder and 1 teaspoon of the coconut oil. Toss well to coat the tofu.
  3. Take the remaining 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and coat the parchment lined sheet pan with a thin layer of the oil. Place the tofu on the sheet pan in a single layer, and roast for 40 minutes, flipping halfway.
  4. To make the honey garlic sauce, add the Worcestershire sauce, raw honey, sesame seeds, and garlic in a small bowl and stir well to combine.
  5. Once tofu has finished cooking, add it back to the large mixing bowl and pour honey garlic sauce over.  Toss the tofu so it’s coated in the sauce. Serve over rice, lo mein, or roasted vegetables!

A Few Notes About Raw Honey

Raw honey is just honey that has not been pasteurized!  We take our honey straight from the hive, and don’t process or subject it to high heat.  Pasteurizing can kill bad (and beneficial) macrobiotics in the honey. You can use normal store-bought honey for this recipe… it doesn’t have to be raw.  That is just the way we like to keep our honey.  Babies under the age of 1 should not be given honey, and pregnant women should avoid unpasteurized foods.  Eat responsibly!

The best place to find raw honey is straight from your local beekeeper!  Check out a farmer’s market or farm stand near you – or reach out to your county or state beekeeping association to connect with beekeeper’s near by.  Support local bees, local keepers, and enjoy the sweet benefits.
