Garlic and Ginger Marinade
From Farm Where Life is Good
<p>This is simple. And when you marinade extra-firm tofu and pad-fry it, you will have an incredibly tasty sandwich-wrap filling for some lunches on the go. Or, a nice tofu and broccoli dinner over rice.</p>Source: http://www.canyoustayfordinner.com (Entered by Lara Rasmussen Anderson)
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 Tbsp ground ginger (or zested fresh/frozen ginger root)
2 Tbsp brown sugar or maple syrup
3 garlic cloves, minced
For a tofu meal:
16 oz extra-firm tofu, pressed and dried, sliced into stickks
1 Tbsp canola oil
Step by Step Instructions
- Whisk all marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Lay the slices of tofu in a shallow pan and pour the marinade over the top. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
- Set a large nonstick frying pan or wok over medium high heat. Add the canola oil and swirl to coat. Place the tofu in the pan in a single layer and let them cook for about 8 minutes per side. Check the underside of one of the pieces after 4 minutes to ensure they don’t burn. The tofu should develop a dark, crisp crust.
- Remove the tofu from the pan, place it on a serving plate, and pour the remaining marinade in the pan. Bring to a boil and simmer, stirring frequently, until it has thickened into a glossy syrup.
- Pour the thickened soy sauce over the tofu and serve with sautéed or grilled vegetables in a flatbread.
