Step 1

If desired, press your tofu in a tofu press or by wrapping the block of tofu in a clean dish towl and carefully placing a heavy pot or pan on top to remove extra water. This isn't necessary, but will give you a more flavorful, crispy tofu.

Step 2

Slice the tofu into 1/3 inch thin rectangles or triangles.

Step 3

In a shallow, rectangular Tupperware, mix together all of the marinade ingredients until combined.

Step 4

Place the sliced tofu into the marinade, put the lid on the Tupperware and allow it to sit in the fridge for 15-30 minutes, flipping the tofu over half way through if possible.

Step 5

Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Remove the tofu from the marinade and place it directly onto the pan. The olive oil in the marinade should keep the tofu from sticking to the pan. Fry the tofu for 3-5 minutes or until browned before flipping and repeating the process on the other side. You can spoon the extra marinade over the top of the tofu as it cooks or save it to use as a sauce.

Step 6

Enjoy the marinated, cooked tofu in buddha bowls, sandwiches, spring rolls, salad, and more!
