Lazy Tofu

Submitted by: DOUBLEOHSEVEN

Introduction

I called this lazy tofu because it has become one of my go-to dinners for those nights where you just don't WANT TO COOK! I called this lazy tofu because it has become one of my go-to dinners for those nights where you just don't WANT TO COOK!
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    Extra firm tofu - 175grams (approx. half a block)
    Lite soy sauce - 2tbsp
    Hoisin - 2 tbsp
    Scallion - 1 stalk
    Garlic - 2 cloves
    Honey - 1 tbsp

Directions

Squeeze your tofu to get the water out - I leave mine between two plates while I prepare everything else.

Mince garlic and scallion. Mix together soy sauce, hoisin, scallion, garlic and honey.

Pat tofu dry, and cut into slices/cubes/chunks as desired.

Mix marinade and tofu and let sit - I typically let mine sit for about 20-30mins, but it's really up to you.

Stir-fry until warmed through and beginning to brown/crisp - takes me about 10-15mins depending if there are other things in the pan.

I often serve it over brown rice, with mixed vegetables.

Makes two servings if divided evenly.

    I loved this. The tofu was not as mushy as some recipes I have had in the past. I marinade was good as well. - 4/20/10

    I tried this being new to tofu and not having a taste bud for soy sauce...however, to my surprise, it was very simple to make and tasted absolutely delicious! I let the tofu marinade for about 1 1/2 hours and served it over brown rice! Yum! - 2/6/08

  • I really enjoyed the ease of assembling this dish. Great directions thank you very much! I did substitue agave since I didn't have honey. I do think for me personally it could use a little kick of pepper to it, not much, just a pinch. - 10/18/11

  • Totally delicious. It was maybe a bit sweet, but that could have been because my scallions were on the downhill slide from fresh. Would maybe add fresh red onion slices next time. - 3/25/09
