Broiled tofu

 

On days that I do not want to cook meat or fish as a protein source, I turn to tofu.  In this part of the world, I can only get silken or firm tofu, both of which are fairly bland and tasteless.  I am always on the lookout for recipes that bring flavour and excitement to a tofu dish.  This one reminds me of simple tofu dishes in Japan. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 30ml/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 30ml/2 Tbsp raw honey or agave nectar
  • 60ml/1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 10ml/2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 small garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 400g firm tofu, drained and cut into 2cm cubes

 

Preparation:

1. Preheat the oven broiler to high and set the oven rack as close as possible.

2. Mix together the soy sauce, honey, oils and garlic in a large bowl.  Add the tofu and gently stir to coat the tofu with the mixture.

3. Transfer the marinated tofu to a baking sheet and pour over any remaining liquid.

4. Broil until the tofu is browned and has a few crispy edges, about 4-5 minutes. 

5. Serve immediately with a side salad.
