Tofu with Teriyaki Sauce

Tofu is one of those comfort foods I enjoy so much. And, there’s an added bonus:it’s healthy. Packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fats, it’s my go-to substitute for meat.

While pan frying it is a quick and easy preparation, I decided to amp up the flavor with a homemade “teriyaki” sauce. Here’s the recipe…

1.) Start with a block of firm tofu. Drain the tofu, using paper towels to soak up the moisture. Cut into small cubes and pan fry. (I used half a block here)


2.) Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by heating half a cup of mirin and half a cup of soy sauce in a small pan. Add half a teaspoon of garlic, ginger, and scallion to the mixture when simmering, and incorporate the cooked tofu cubes.

3.) Enjoy!!

This recipe is super easy and I hope you’ll give it a try.

What is your favorite way to make tofu?
