  • Slice the tofu into 5-8 mm slices
  • Put the slices between tea towels or paper towels and put something heavy on top.
  • Leave for at least 1 hr - or up to 3hrs, to take the moisture out.
  • Put all the ingredients for the marinade in a plastic container that you can fit all the slices of tofu in a single layer.
  • Mix the marinade around until it is combined, then add the tofu. Turn the tofu pieces in the marinade so they are covered in it!
  • Pop the container in the fridge and leave for a few hours, or better, overnight, so the tofu soaks up loads of flavour!
  • Pan fry the tofu so it's crispy on each side (around 10 mins) or bake in a moderate oven (200C / Gas mark 6) for 45 mins.
  • Serve on a sandwich, in a salad, a stir fry


Make a whole pack or two of these ready to add to sandwiches, to stir fries, or just to snack on!
