Soft marinated tofu \\ Tofu soyeux mariné

When I shared my quinoa bowl featuring this soft marinated tofu on Instagram, someone asked for the recipe, and I shared it there. However, this is so good, it really deserves its own blog post. I updated the recipe a bit, but it’s still terribly easy and delicious.

Here is what you need:

  • 250g soft tofu
  • 2 tbs light tamari sauce or light soy saue
  • 2 tbs vegan Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbs sesame seeds
  • 1 tbs wakame flakes
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • pepper or red chili flakes to taste
  1. Cut the soft tofu in medium size cubes. Make sure not to cut the tofu in small pieces as this tofu is very tender and will break during the cooking process. Place your tofu in a saucepan.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients and add to the tofu. Gently mix until each piece of tofu is well coated.
  3. Let simmer on medium heat until the tofu is warm all the way through. This should take less than 10 minutes. Remove from the stove and enjoy!

This is so quick to prepare and so delicious! It’s really good with some quinoa and even better with some rice and grilled veggies. The sauce is savory and has something from the sea with the wakame which is really good. It’s a great way to prepare tofu if you’re out of time. Let me know if you try this out!


Lorsque j’ai partagé un de mes bols de quinoa avec du tofu soyeux sur Instagram, quelqu’un m’a demandé la recette que j’ai postée en commentaire. Cependant, cette recette est tellement bonne qu’elle mérite vraiment son propre post. J’ai un peu retravaillé la recette, mais elle est toujours terriblement facile et délicieuse.

Voici ce dont vous avez besoin:

  • 250g de tofu soyeux
  • 2 c. à soupe de sauce tamari légère (moins de sel) ou de sauce soja légère
  • 2 c. à soupe de sauce Worcestershire végane
  • 1 gousse d’ail émincée
  • 2 c. à soupe de graines de sésame
  • 1 c. à soupe de flocons de wakame
  • 1 c. à thé de sirop d’érable
  • poivre ou flocons de piment au goût
  1. Découpez le tofu en cube de grosseur moyenne. Tenez compte du fait que parce que ce tofu est très mou, il se désagrégera un peu durant la cuisson. Placez le tofu dans une petite casserole.
  2. Dans un petit bol, mélanger le reste des ingrédients pour former la sauce. Incorporez-la au tofu et mélangez doucement jusqu’à ce que chaque morceau soit bien nappé de sauce.
  3. Laissez mijoter sur feu moyen jusqu’à ce que le tofu soit bien chaud. Cela prend moins de 10 minutes. Retirez du feu et savourez!

C’est tellement facile et rapide à préparer! Ce tofu est délicieux avec du quinoa et encore meilleur avec du riz et des légumes grillés. La sauce est savoureuse et légèrement océane grace aux flocons de wakame. C’est vraiment une façon délicieuse de préparer du tofu alors j’espère que vous allez l’essayer!

  2. Cut the mushrooms length wise. Heat up 1 tsp of coconut oil in a saucepan and add the mushrooms. Stir until they are golden. Add in the tamari sauce, red pepper flakes, garlic and half the green onion. Give a quick stir until the tamari sauce is well absorbed. Remove from the heat.
