If you want a thickened glaze or sticky sauce to pour over your tofu after cooking, you can simply thicken your leftover marinade.

Add the diced tofu and let it marinate, covered in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. A generous amount (2 to 3 tablespoons or so) will keep the tofu from sticking to the pan. Pour the marinade over the tofu and let marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Yes, that’s what I’m trying to say Thanks for your help! If you’re in a rush, give the marinade at least 30 minutes to work its magic. It can accompany many meals the same way chicken or beef can (without the cruelty, of course) and is so easy to diversify with different flavors and cooking methods. (Note: You could also skip this step completely and work with plain tofu, especially if you’re frying it.). This is utterly delicious and so easy to make. I was just wondering at what heat do you fry your tofu at? This prevents the liquid from seeping out while the tofu cooks (which could ruin your meal) and also makes room for the tofu to soak up a flavorful marinade or broth.

I add some sesame seeds while I’m cooking the tofu in the marinade and it’s perfect. Put something heavy on the top and let the tofu drain for about 30 minutes. Then, snap a photo and tag me on Instagram @karissasvegankitchen so I can see your delicious creation! This baked BBQ tofu is mouthwatering alongside vegan mashed potatoes and sautéed green beans or asparagus. You can also subscribe without commenting. The flavors are balanced with savory, sweet, tangy, and spicy: soy sauce, garlic and sesame oil, tangy rice vinegar, maple syrup and a touch of gochujang hot sauce for a hint of heat.

Bake for 15 minutes, then flip the tofu, brushing each side again with more BBQ sauce.

Marinading it is just letting it sit in a bowl with the marinade: you’ll just need to stir it once. Full printable recipe card is at the bottom of the post! Please leave a comment and a star review below.

What to Serve With Make the marinade: Whisk together the soy sauce, ACV, brown sugar, olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, and black pepper. It’s sooo tasty and just unbelievably easy, I’ve made it every day since I found this recipe.

To do this, simply add 1 tbsp of corn starch to the cold marinade, stir well and then cook over medium heat in a saucepan for a few minutes until it boils.

Feel free to slice the block into width-wide pieces before pressing, as long as your tofu is firm or extra firm.

If you let it marinate longer, it will have a more intense flavor.

We are officially huge fans of tofu in this house! Mix together the soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika and black pepper.

I tried it and it was amazing.After marinating and pan frying it I added it to a French beans,baby carrot and pepper stirfry.suited me well cos I dont do gluten. If you’re pan-frying, all you need is oil and tofu (to deep-fry, add more oil). Pour the sauce into the frying pan and cook until it thickens. Broiling tofu is essentially just like baking it, only the heat is more intense and likely comes from above.

i believe the liquid means the marinade it was in not the… tofu water?

Either sift some over each side of the tofu pieces on a prepared baking sheet or add the cornstarch and tofu to a bag and shake until evenly coated.

Remove the ends of the beans and cut them in half. Optionally you can pinch some holes in the tofu with a fork, this way the tofu will soak up the marinade better.

Once heated, add the marinated tofu and brown each side for about 2 minutes.

I was looking for a simple recipe to make because I’ve never been a big fan of cooking.

Ok, what does Step 2 mean, “Strain the tofu, but don’t discard the liquid.”. If you want to avoid soy sauce, it may be difficult to find another ingredient to use in its place.

You just need to marinate the tofu for 15 minutes, but if you’re in a hurry, you could even sautée the diced tofu (using some oil or not, you choose) and then add the sauce.

Let each side cook for about 2 minutes until distinct grill marks appear. ★☆ Don’t be shy about turning up the flame if it’s not crisping up the way you crave and be sure the pan is hot enough from the start.

Though you don’t *need* to cube or dice it—long slices or even steaks work well for certain cooking methods. The more it marinates, the more flavorful the tofu will be but it also may take longer to cook with the additional moisture.

Put the tofu in the marinade for at least 10 minutes. Since it doesn’t technically need to be cooked at all, there’s no need to worry about its internal temperature. Since tofu starts wet, it can take longer than you may expect to brown.

★☆ Bake for an additional 15 minutes or until tofu has crispy edges.
