A common (and supereasy) way to prepare tofu used on top of salads or in sandwiches is to marinate it. Just make your sauce, pour it on your tofu, stir it around, and leave it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes (overnight is even better). Here's a simple recipe to try:
- 1 block tofu, cubed
- 2 to 3 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
You can enjoy the tofu cold right out of the fridge, or you can sauté it in a pan with a little oil if you prefer your tofu warmer or with crispy edges. Marinated tofu would taste amazing in this roasted sweet potato mason jar salad.
