Asian Marinated Tofu

Prep: 5 Resting: 30 minutes Cook: 10 minutes


I have been doing a lot of marinated and sauteed tofu lately because it tastes so much better than the baked tofu that is available in markets. Be sure to use extra firm tofu in this recipe or the tofu will tend to fall apart.


  • 20 ounces extra firm tofu
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp light miso
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp agave nectar
  • 2 tsp mirin


Drain the tofu and cut into small cubes.

Place the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Pour over the tofu and toss to coat well. Let rest for at least 30 minutes, mixing occasionally to make sure the tofu is well covered with the marinade.

Turn the tofu and the marinade into a large non-stick saute pan. Dry fry for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally with a spatula to make sure the cubes are well browned on all sides.
