This is hands down my FAVOURITE way to eat tofu from now on.
Makes for 2-4 servings.
450g firm tofu
For the sauce:
1 clove garlic finely chopped
½ lemon squeezed
Pinch of ground ginger
2 tbsp soy sauce (or tamari)
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp hot water
+ Brown rice and basil to serve.
Crumble plain tofu on a baking tray, place in oven and bake until brown.
Remove tofu from the oven, cover with sauce and let marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight - Alternatively, you can skip this and eat it straight away!
Serve with brown rice, basil leaves + a bit of chilli (if you’re game).
Nutrition information surrounding tofu/soy products:
Tofu is a complete protein source, meaning that it contains all of the essential amino acids that your body cannot synthesise.
Per 1 cup, it contains approximately 20g of protein.
Soy foods also contain plant sterols which have shown to be associated with protective health benefits.
2-4 servings of soy a day as part of a balanced and varied diet is okay.
