Saturday Quick Post!

Tofy Satay

 
This was one of those dinners that came out so great that I wanted to save the list of ingredients but I hadn’t measured everything out.  If you typically follow a recipe to the letter (not mentioning any names, MOM), I encourage you to try this one out and just wing it by utilizing your sense of taste!
 
Mix the ingredients, taste it, and think – does it need more salt?  Add some more Braggs (or soy, or tamari). Too sweet?  Balance it out with some more vinegar.  Just experiment!
 
Also, my original intent was to skewer the tofu but cutting the block into tofu steaks saved time so I went with it – and it came out perfectly. Use the skewers if you are going for presentation.
 
Tip: This marinade can be used for any protein.  You can leave it over night, for just an hour or simply brush it on – so versatile!

1. Press water from the tofu then slice in half and then through the center into “steaks” or however you like to slice your tofu – any way will work.

  1. That looks great, Dawn! Almost looks like a piece of fish from first glance. I need to add more soy into my diet, this would be a great place to start!
