Marinated Tofu


Easy marinated tofu, a super simple recipe that makes tofu tastes amazing.

It’s low in fat, high in protein and only requires 8 ingredients and 20 minutes.



  • 275 g firm tofu  diced
  • 1/4 cup water (65 ml)
  • 2 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne powder
  • 1 tsp corn-starch
  • Extra virgin olive oil (optional)
  • Chopped chives (optional)
    1. Mix the marinade ingredients in a baking dish or a mixing bowl (water, tamari or soy sauce, vinegar, syrup, garlic powder and cayenne powder) until well combined.
        Add the diced tofu and let it marinate, covered in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. If you let it marinate longer, it will have a more intense flavour.
   2. Strain the tofu, but don’t discard the liquid.
   3. Sauté the tofu in a frying pan until golden brown. You can add some oil or not, it’s up to you.
   4. Add the marinade liquid to a bowl with the corn-starch and mix until well combined. Pour the sauce into the frying pan and cook until it thickens.
   5. Serve and garnish with some chopped chives (optional).
   6. Keep leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge for 4 to 5 days.
