Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Once boiling, reduce to simmer and cook for 3-5 minutes or until blackberries begin to break down.
Remove from heat and pour through a sieve. Push down on the berries with the back of a spoon until you get as much juice as possible out.
Pour the mixture back into your pot, add the maple syrup, and bring to a boil. Then reduce to simmer until mixture has reduce by half (about 15-20 minutes - may need longer).
Remove from heat and let cool. Will thicken more as it cools.
Slice tofu in half and half each again to end up with 4 tofu fillets.
Lighly coat a baking sheet or oven safe pan with oil. Lightly coat each piece of tofu with oil. Sprinkle each side of tofu with salt and pepper to taste.
Brush cooled blackberry sauce over all sides of the tofu. Bake for 8-9 minutes. Remove, brush with mixture again and then broil for 3 minutes.
