Marinated Tofu (The Best Tofu Ever!)
"This is no joke! It IS the best tofu marinade recipe ever."
– 16 ounces extra-firm tofu – 4 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce – 3 tablespoons rice vinegar – 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup – 1 teaspoon sesame oil –2 garlic cloves, minced – 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger, OR 1/2 teaspoon dried ginger – 2-3 tablespoons neutral oil, such as canola
TIP: How to prevent tofu from sticking in the pan
The key to keep tofu from sticking to the bottom of a pan is this: when you first add the tofu cubes to the hot pan with oil coating the bottom, let them cook, without trying to move them AT ALL, for 3-4 minutes. They should get browned and crispy on the bottom by then, and will be much easier to flip. Repeat once you flip them. Do this instead of trying to move them around too much. Use a quality spatula to move them around in the pan, and be gentle.
