1 block extra firm tofu, pressed
4.5 tablespoons soy sauce (or tamari for gluten-free)
Once the tofu is pressed, cut it into cubes, strips, or triangles based on your preference.
In a sealable container, or zip-lock bag (we use reusable Stasher Bags), add in all of the ingredients except for the tofu and mix until uniform.
Once mixed, add in the tofu, mix or shake until the tofu is well coated. Allow the tofu to marinate for at least 1 hour, or overnight.
Add the marinated tofu and the remainder of the marinade to a cast-iron or non-stick pan and cook on medium-low heat until all of the liquid cooks down, rotating tofu as needed to brown all of the sides evenly. This should take about 8-10 minutes. If your pan is not non stick, we suggest adding in 1 tablespoon of cooking oil.
Remove from heat and allow the tofu to cool befopre serving. Enjoy!
