Tasty Marinated Tofu
 
Prep time
Total time
 
These tasty cubes of tofu don't need to be cooked. You just marinate them in the delicious sauce. Thirty minutes is enough, but the flavour just keeps getting better by the next day. It will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days. I love this tofu on a salad with romaine, cucumber, peppers, carrots, avocado (20g) and feta. Marinated tofu is also delicious in stir-fries, rice bowls or noodle bowls. It is super convenient to bring to work for lunch. You can even eat it on its own.
