Marinated Tofu

Now I must admit that I am not a herbivore.



 If you give me a crispy slice of bacon, perfectly cooked fish, succulent short ribs, juicy roast chicken etc... I just happily won't be able to resist. So I love my vegetables and my meat. But I also like tofu. I feel like tofu gets kinda of a bad rap. In the United States, tofu is synonymous as being tasteless, diet or vegetarian food; however, that is not true. You don't have to be a vegetarian to appreciate tofu!




Tofu tastes pretty bland on its own, so the fun part is what you add to it. Tofu is almost like a sponge that immerses itself into other flavors, such as my marinade.

**Ingredients:

1 package chilled silken tofu, cut into cubes
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 tbs. rice wine vinegar
3 tsp. toasted sesame oil
1 tbs. siracha sauce
2 scallions, chopped
sprinkle of black sesame seeds
salt
pepper


Mix all of the ingredients together besides the tofu. Taste the sauce and adjust the seasonings. Add the tofu to the sauce and gently stir to incorporate all the flavors.


**Note that this makes a lot of sauce, which I did let the tofu marinate and stay in; however, when eating it we did not consume all the sauce. Add as much or as little as you want.


Happy Eatings!
