Gochujang Maple Tofu Nuggets

5 from 1 review

A spicy, smoky, sweet sauce to top your perfect crispy baked tofu nuggets! This sauce uses the Korean fermented chili pepper paste, gochujang! It’s vegan and oh-so good.


  • 1 batch Crispy Baked Tofu Nuggets
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons gochujang*
  • Optiona toppings: sesame seeds, cilantro, green onion, etc.


  1. Make the tofu nuggets according to the instructions.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk your maple syrup and gochujang. Taste, and adjust as needed. If you need it thinner, feel free to whisk in a small bit of water.
  3. When the tofu nuggets are hot, toss them in the gochujang maple sauce. Top with your desired toppings, and enjoy hot!


*From my understanding, gochujang comes in a variety of heat levels, and the spiciness of the gochujang you’re using will obviously affect the final flavor of this two-ingredient recipe. I suggest starting with a small amount of gochujang and working up to a point that works for you.
