Marinated Tofu Steaks
from Chef

The recipe for this marinade is inspired by the excellent Toronto vegetarian restaurant Fresh, where "even the tofu tastes good" (to quote a dear, dear non-tofu-loving friend), and their cookbook "Fresh at Home". These are delicious and you can serve them with salad, over rice, or in a burger or wrap. Overnight marinating time included in prep time.


  • 250 g extra firm tofu
  • 2 tablespoons ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup tamari
  • 2 cups water

Slice the tofu block into steak-sized rectangles.

Arrange tofu slices in a shallow dish so they overlap as little as possible.

Combine other ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

Pour over tofu steaks. If there isn't enough liquid to cover the steaks, add some more water and swish it around a bit until well combined.

Cover and refrigerate overnight (or as long as you've got).

Cook marinated tofu steaks on grill or in non-stick skillet.

Give it a few minutes on each side, or until lightly browned.
