Pan-Grilled Marinated Tofu With Two Variations

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by kelly in TO

An easy, mild flavor marinated, mainly to use in recipes such as stir frys, pasta, noodles, rice, soups and practically anything else, when you want to add a little flavor and texture to otherwise plain tofu. I also find this flavorful enough to eat plain with a little rice and steamed veggies. Time does not include the 30 minute marinade time.

I made this for vegetarian friends from India. They loved it and we thought it was pretty good as well.
