Tofu Marinade

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Total Time: 4 Hours


1 Block of extra firm organic tofu

1 tbsp. Fresh ginger (minced)

4 Garlic cloves (minced)

2 tbsp. Sesame oil

1 tbsp. Rice wine vinegar

3 tbsp. Tamari (or soy sauce or coconut aminos)

2 tbsp. Maple syrup

1 tbsp. Water

Optional: 1 tbsp. Sunflower oil (to cook the tofu)


Wrap the tofu in a towel and place it in between two plates. Put a heavy object such as a cookbook on top of the tofu. Press the juice out of the tofu for 2 hours. Check on the towel and replace it if it becomes saturated.

Combine the ginger, garlic, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, tamari, maple syrup and water in a bowl. Mix all the ingredients and add the tofu. Let the tofu absorb the marinade for 2 hours.

Option to cook the tofu in a sauté pan with 1 tbsp. sunflower oil for 10 minutes. Make sure to flip the tofu to crisp each side.

Option to use the tofu in my Healthy Vegan Tofu Summer Roll recipe.
