This Crispy Teriyaki Tofu is a quick, incredibly flavourful, make ahead dish! It’s WAY better than takeout and perfect for weeknight dinners.
Do you ever have one of those nights where you are just way too tired to make any kind of lengthy dinner? Oh wait, does that happen pretty often? I’m raising my hand too. Just when you’re ready to order takeout or settle for cereal, in steps this Crispy Teriyaki Tofu. Easily marinated from up to two days before, all you need to do is heat it all up in a pot until cooked through straight out of the fridge. Quick, easy and perfect weeknight dinner.
Tofu is an ingredient that I love to experiment with. I always ensure that I get GMO-free, extra-firm silky tofu when I’m making dinner recipes. It’s great for absorbing flavours, it’s sturdy in a pot, and tastes great. Tofu is great for adding protein to a dish and also pretty affordable. I always recommend pressing tofu to remove the water from it to get the best quality tofu for your dish.
My favourite part about this dish is the flavour profile from the Teriyaki Tofu marinade. I’m talking soy sauce or liquid aminos, crushed red peppers, raw unrefined sugar, ginger and rice wine vinegar. Add the teriyaki to the mix and you can marinade it for at least 20 minutes, and up to 2 days. This means you can meal prep on a Sunday night, then on Monday you can come home to a delicious, quick home cooked meal that matches up perfectly to your favourite takeout dish.
