Tofu Stir-Fry

Prep time: 10 minutes

Marinade Time: 30 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Yields: 4 people



  • 1 pound firm tofu 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil



  • 1 tablespoon ginger juice

  • 1/2 tablespoon tamari soy sauce

  • 1/2 cup brown rice vinegar

  • 1/2 cup toasted sesame oil

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 2 cloves shredded garlic



  1. After draining, cut tofu into 1-inch squares.

  2. Combine ginger juice, tamari, vinegar, oil, cilantro and garlic in a medium-sized bowl.

  3. Add tofu to marinade and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or overnight.

  4. Heat olive oil and sesame oil in a skillet.

  5. Add tofu and quick stir-fry until tofu becomes golden brown.



  • Try pressing the tofu 15-60 minutes. This will increase the ability of the tofu to absorb flavor and will make the tofu crispier. To press tofu, place it in a strainer over a bowl. Cover tofu with a plate and place a heavy object on top, pressing the tofu.

  • To make ginger juice, grate about 2 inches of ginger into a piece of cheesecloth or a dishtowel. Wrap the cloth or towel around the ginger and squeeze into bowl.
