Teriyaki tofu

Just like teriyaki chicken, but with tofu! I rarely eat soy products, but when I do I love making this because it’s so flavorful and my brothers enjoy them too!

Serves: 4


  • 10-oz of firm or extra firm tofu.
  • 2 tbsp aminos or soy sauce.
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar.
  • 6 tbsp corn starch or tapioca starch.
  • Oil for the pan.
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced.


  • 3 tbsp aminos or soy sauce.
  • 3 tbsp rice vinegar.
  • 3 tbsp water.
  • 3 tbsp coconut sugar.
  • 1 tbsp corn or tapioca starch
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes.
  • 1 tsp sesame oil.


Drain and press the tofu. Cut into cubes and put them in a plastic or silicone bag with the 2 tbsp aminos and 1 tbsp rice vinegar. Let marinate in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. Get a new plastic/silicone bag and add the 6 tbsp cornstarch and the marinated tofu. Shake until well coated in the starch. Heat some oil in a large pan and sauté the tofu on medium-high on all sides until golden. In a large bowl whisk together all of the sauce ingredients and add to the pan with the minced garlic. Cook until the garlic is fragrant and make sure the tofu is evenly coated in the sauce. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with chopped green onion!
