Ginger Hoisin Tofu

Quinoa (optional)


  • Ginger Hoisin Tofu: Mix hoisin sauce, ginger, tamari, brown rice vinegar, toasted sesame oil, and water. Slice tofu into large rectangles and add them to the marinade. Marinate for an hour to overnight.
  • In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Place marinated tofu (not the marinade) in pan, and cook until golden brown on each side.
  • Quinoa (if using): Rinse quinoa thoroughly. Bring water and quinoa to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Add salt. Cook for about 15 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes until the water is absorbed and quinoa is fluffy and tender.
  • Serve ginger hoisin tofu over quinoa, rice or cauliflower rice along with marinade*.


You may want to double the marinade if serving over quinoa or rice, or serve it with hoisin sauce straight from the jar.
