Easy Vegan Teriyaki Seared Tofu

For dinner I made myself one of the simplest dishes ever, and it turned out pretty great! Not only was this easy to make, but there are very few ingredients making it affordable as well.

You will need:

  1. Teriyaki Sauce( I use Kikkoman low sodium)
  2. Soy Sauce
  3. Agave
  4. Ground Ginger
  5. Garlic Powder
  6. Onion Powder
  7. Salt and Pepper
  8. 1 Package of Firm Tofu
  9. 1 Bag of Frozen Veggies (I use Bird’s Eye Steam Fresh Asian Medley)
  10. 1 Cup of Microwavable White Rice (but, you can use any type of rice you like)

First, drain your tofu. Then cut it lengthwise into planks- about 1/4-1/2 an inch. Once your tofu slices are cut, use paper towels to press out any excess moisture. In a ziplock bag, combine the teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, agave, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. I didn’t use exact measurements when doing this part, I just eyeballed everything. Place the tofu planks into the bag and let them marinate in the fridge for 2-3 hours. The longer your tofu sits in the teriyaki mixture, the more flavorful it will be!

After 2-3 hours, heat a small skillet with about a tablespoon of olive oil, and cook the tofu for about 3-4 minutes on each side.

As the tofu is cooking, pop the frozen veggies into the microwave. When they are done, drain them then transfer them to a reusable container. Pour the extra marinade over the steamed veggies. Then, pop the rice into the microwave.

I like to serve my dish with the rice on the bottom of plate, then veggies on top, and then the tofu on top of that, but you can assemble your dish any way you like.

This dish is delicious and VERY filling. You can definitely make this into 2 or 3 meals.

I cannot wait to make this again!
