Tofu Stir-Fry

Prep time: 
  • 10 minutes

Prep notes: 
  • Marinade Time: 30 minutes

Cooking time: 
  • 15 minutes

Yields: 
  • 4 people

Ingredients: 
  • 1 pound firm tofu
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • Marinade:
    • 1 tablespoon ginger juice
    • 1/2 tablespoon tamari soy sauce
    • 1/2 cup brown rice vinegar
    • 1/2 cup toasted sesame oil
    • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    • 2 cloves shredded garlic

Directions: 
  • After draining, cut tofu into 1-inch squares.
  • Combine ginger juice, tamari, vinegar, oil, cilantro and garlic in a medium-sized bowl.
  • Add tofu to marinade and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  • Heat olive oil and sesame oil in a skillet.
  • Add tofu and quick stir-fry until tofu becomes golden brown.

Notes: 
  • Try pressing the tofu 15-60 minutes. This will increase the ability of the tofu to absorb flavor and will make the tofu crispier. To press tofu, place it in a strainer over a bowl. Cover tofu with a plate and place a heavy object on top, pressing the tofu.
  • To make ginger juice, grate about 2 inches of ginger into a piece of cheesecloth or a dishtowel. Wrap the cloth or towel around the ginger and squeeze into bowl.
