Marinated Tofu with White Rice and Spinach

Hi everyone! After seeing lots of success with marinated tofu over at My cat loves Daiya!, I decided to give it a try. I used a modified version of the orange sauce from the veganized orange chik’n in Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food – I left out the canola oil and cornstarch (and the mirin, but I always leave that out) – as a marinade for a block of tofu that I’d cut into smaller pieces. Later, I cooked the tofu, still in the marinade, and used some of the leftover marinade as a sauce when I added the tofu to the rice & spinach. It turned out pretty good, and it was definitely an easier way to prepare the tofu, so I’m sure I’ll be making more marinated tofu in the future! Do you have any favorite marinade recipes/ingredients you’d recommend? 


Here’s Daisy, dozing dramatically… 


Peace. :)

  1. The baked tofu in Isa Does It is my go to for marinated, baked tofu. There's also an Italian marinated tofu in Oh She Glows Everyday that is totally amazing for salads and you don't cook it at all!

  2. I love marinated tofu! I love a hoisin-based marinade, or miso-based. The soy glazed tofu in 1000 Vegan Recipe is also a great way to make super fast, tasty, marinated and baked tofu with a short marinade time.

    1. I think I'd definitely enjoy a hoisin-based marinade, and the soy glazed tofu sounds really good, too! :)
