失The Ultimate TOFU失

dinner healthy recipe high protein recipe oilfree recipe tofu vegan

There are a million ways to prepare the wonderful bean curd. You can get it pre-cooked, buffed, fried, pickled, smoked, etc. My fave is to freeze, marinade and grill tofu!

marinated tofu

Why freeze? You don'thave to. I used to never do this, and it was just fine. Freezing changes the uniform texture into tougher, more stringy, and meat-like. Also you can press A LOT more liquid out of it, and it will absorb A LOT more flavor 中

tofu marinade

4 blocks tofu
1/2 cup soy sause
1/2 Tbspn powdered ginger
1 Tbspn lemon juice
4 drops liquid smoke
4 cloves garlic 1 Tbspn onion powder
1/2 tspn smoked paprika
1/2 tspn pepper
4 Tbspn sriracha, Korean bbq paste or regular bbq

Fancy additions:
1/2 tablespoon freshly ground ginger and tumeric root
freshly ground lemon or orange peel
a dash cayene
any savory fresh herb

frozen tofu


∴ Press tofu lightly and put on a wire rack. Freeze for at least 4 hrs. Take out of the freezer and thaw at least 6 hrs
∴ Press again and cut / crumble if you like
∴ mix your marinade ingredients and throw everything into a Tupperware or zip lock
∴ leave in the fridge for up to a week (the longer - the stronger the flavor is gonna be), or on the counter for at least 30 min if you're cooking immediately ∴ do what you want with it now- pan sear, bake, air fry (one of my friends just eats it uncooked lol)...
∴Top with fresh chives and roasted sesame seeds
