Delicious tofu teriyaki!
I just love dishes with teriyaki sauce and it is so damn easy to make! You can use it in so many variations and since I’m cutting down on my meat consumption I recently discovered my love for tofu dishes. If you didn’t try cooking with tofu please do! Made with the right spices it is a very healthy and tasty alternative when you don’t like to eat meat.
So below is this quick and easy recipe:
First start with marinating your tofu:
Cut the tofu into slices or cubes. Make a marinade with lemon, salt and pepper and marinade the tofu slices, 1/2-24 h, depending on how much time you have. The longer you let it rest, the more tasty it gets 😉
Then continue with the Teriyaki sauce. You will need:
– 2 cups of water
– 1/2 cup soy sauce
– chopped ginger and garlic as you like
– 5 teaspoons of brown sugar, you can also use less depending on your taste
-3-5 teaspoons of honey
– 2-4 tablespoons cornstarch depending on how thick you want the sauce to be
Mix everything together and let it cook for a while. Then mix in the cornstarch, let it cook for a while and then let it rest for a bit.
For the fry:
Cut your vegetables (pepper, broccoli, snow peas, carrots or whatever vegetable you prefer). Heat your pan. Fry the tofu until it’s crusty. Dash in some cut garlic and the vegetables. You can now add the earlier prepared sauce into the pan and let it simmer for some minutes until everything is cooked through.
Now you can either serve it with rice or noodles!
