Soy, now what!
Crispy and a bit sweet, tofu planks are seared then baked with a "Terrific Teriyaki Glaze" and served with buttered edamame.
It didn't hit me until now that other than the tossed green salad it's an all soy meal.
First things first. Slice the tofu into planks and wrap the planks between several layers of paper towels. Put a heavy weight on top of the planks and let the planks drain for at least 10 minutes. I'm trying to reduce my use of disposable products so I used a kitchen towel instead of paper towels and put a cast iron skillet on top. Worked a treat.
While the tofu is draining, make the "Terrific Teriyaki Sauce," believe me, it is terrific and so simple.
All you need is some soy sauce, sesame oil, mirin, dark brown sugar, garlic, and ginger, sesame seeds optional. Sooo good.
In a skillet sear the tofu until golden brown.
Lightly coat the bottom of a baking dish with a few tablespoons of the glaze.
Add the tofu planks and spoon on some glaze, and bake until golden and bubbly.
I used the Ninja Foodi on the bake function set to 390*, I first checked it after 5 minutes, then every few minutes after that. All you need to do is get the tofu a bit hotter and the glaze gooey and sticky.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
And that's that!
