Teriyaki Tofu

I love making this meal because it’s honestly so delicious and a quick meal after the gym! I typically make butternut squash with it and broccoli, but feel free to make what you like most too!

This meal costs less than $10 to make and serves up to 3 or 4 people depending on how many veggies you make 😉

So, I usually make a lot of veggies!

Ingredients: 

  • 1 pack of firm or extra firm tofu
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup of panko bread crumbs
  • 2 – 3 tablespoons of soyaki sauce (Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 teaspoon agave or honey
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic salt
  • 1 tablespoon of ground ginger
  • Cooking spray

Directions:

  1. Drain tofu and remove from package
  2. Cut tofu into 3/4 inch slices and lay out flat between paper towels
  3. Put a weighted cooking sheet on top and press tofu for 30 minutes. This will remove the water from the tofu and allow it to soak up the marinade
  4. While tofu is draining, mix together (except the Panko) all of the ingredients in a bowl
  5. Spray pan with cooking spray
  6. Put slices of marinated tofu onto a HOT pan, wait for first side to brown (about five minutes) and then cook on other side until browned
  7. Next, add in the bread crumbs
  8. Lastly, add in any veggies you want and more soyaki sauce if needed

Sides:

  • Butternut Squash – the bag of the fresh ones from Trader Joe’s. Add a dash of garlic salt, salt and fresh ginger and bake for 30 minutes. If in a hurry, steam in the bag for 3 minutes in the microwave. Then, cook on stove with ingredients added for about 10 minutes or so on high. Lastly, I like to add balsamic glaze to the top!
  • Beet and Avocado Salad – 1/2 avocado, 2 beats (package from Trader Joe’s), dash of garlic salt, salt, balsamic vinegar, rice vinegar and balsamic glaze. Lastly, a dash of parmesan cheese 🙂

Let me know if you have any questions! Oh, and ENJOY!!
