Sauteed Tofu and Vegetables with Tamari

If you click on one of my recommended item links and then place an order through Amazon, I receive a small commission on that sale, at no extra expense to you.

This is so yummy and incredibly easy to make. I sometimes use Trader Joe’s Soyaki Teriyaki sauce or Island Soyaki sauce.

Optional garnish: If you want to get fancy, take green onions, use this scallion shredder tool and make a pretty garnish.

Serves 2.

One package of firm or extra firm tofu

2 Tbsp olive or canola oil

2 cups Cherry tomatoes, halved

One bunch Green Onions, the white and green parts, cleaned and cut into one inch pieces

3/4 pound cremini mushrooms cleaned and sliced or quartered

Tamari sauce, to taste or 6 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Soyaki 

Garnish with shredded green onions or Toasted Sesame Seeds

Open tofu package and drain the liquid. Wrap the block of tofu in a clean towel and put it in the refrigerator. After about an hour replace the towel with another clean dry one.

Cut up all the vegetables and put in a bowl or bowls like I show here. This can all be done earlier in the day, covered and refrigerated.

When you are ready to prepare this dish, cut the tofu into 1 inch squares and place that in a heated large non-stick pan over medium high heat with a tablespoon of olive oil. Distribute the squares evenly, leave them along and let them get browned for about 4 minutes. Then, stir, and let sit for another 3 minutes until browned on at least two sides of the squares. Remove the tofu from the pan and cover to keep it warm. Add another tablespoon of olive oil to the plan heat it up and add the vegetables. Sauté until they are done to your liking but careful not to overcook. Add the tofu back in and stir. Pour some tamari sauce evenly all over the tofu and vegetables and stir to warm. Taste it and add more if needed. serve and garnish if you’d like with toasted sesame seeds. I use this product:
