London Broil Marinated Tofu

London broil was traditionally a cooking method used to prepare steaks. However, you should definitely try it with tofu too! It is quick and delicious enough to make anyone forget that they don't like tofu. The marinade gives tofu a western flair with its touches of rosemary and its sweet and smoky marinade. The mix of different sauces and herbs makes this fragrant dish taste like you've just cooked tofu on a barbecue! It is scrumptious, try it yourself!

Servings 2 portions

Ingredients
  

  • 400 g extra firm tofu
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 203 stalks scallions finely chopped
  • 1 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 2 tbsp of water

For the marinade:

  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp fresh rosemary finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Drain tofu and wrap in a tea towel to remove excess water. Slice into bite size cubes and put in a Ziploc bag.
  • In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients for the marinade and then pour in the Ziploc bag. Gently massage the tofu until all the pieces are evenly coated. Marinade for 30 minutes in the fridge.
  • Heat up the extra virgin olive in a pan over high heat. Drain the tofu pieces and keep the marinade aside. Add the tofu to the pan and fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes each side.
  • Lower the heat to medium and add remaining marinade followed by the dissolved cornstarch. Stir until the sauce thickens, about 1 minute.
  • At this point, you can add frozen or blanched vegetables and stir until cooked.
  • Turn the heat off and transfer to a plate. Serve with your favorite whole grains and top with scallions. While tofu is often eaten with rice, this marinade goes better with quinoa.
  • Enjoy!
