Awesome grilled tofu marinade

The other night I made this marinade with some tofu (pressed in a TofuXpress to get more water out).

The recipe for the marinade is:

  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon toasted sesame oil

I marinated the tofu (I used a really firm tofu – which is also really high in protein) and fried it in a really hot skillet (which gave it a lovely colour). It was delicious. I served it with some broccoli (quickly fried with garlic and ginger and a tablespoon or two of the marinade) and some cous cous.

Actually… I think I’ll have to make this again soon. Really simple to do (although pressing the tofu and marinating takes time, but time you can do other things) and really tasty.

  1. Ahem … (paraphrasing the TofuXpress website):

    Two small polyethylene cutting boards held together with 4 bolts and wingnuts is a gourmet tofu press that actually works! It’s a simple device that is clean, compact, durable, and very easy to use! — No more single-function fiddly-to-clean expensive unecessary kitchen gadgets with god-knows how many carbon miles involved in their manufacture and transport between county-of-manufacture, country-of-vendor and country-of-use!

    But yeah, press before marinate your tofu is the way to go! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Yeah, you could pretty easily make your own one of these, but it’s actually not too bad. It is pretty simple to clean though – i just throw it in the dishwasher :)
