Asian Tofu Marinade Recipe

Photo Asian Tofu Marinade Recipe

While tofu (made from soybeans) has little taste on its own, marinating this relatively bland food infuses it with loads of flavour. Marinated tofu adds a greater depth of flavour to savoury recipes. For even more flavour, consider adding curry powder, hot chilis, ginger, shallots, mirin, miso paste, horseradish or sherry to this marinade.


350 g block of tofu
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp water
1 tbsp chopped green onion
1 tsp rice wine vinegar
1 tsp vegetable oil


Step 1: Pat block of firm tofu dry with paper towels, then slice.

Step 2: Combine marinade ingredients in a bowl.

Step 3: Soak tofu slices in marinade for just 20 minutes, if in a hurry, or overnight. Discard marinade before cooking.
