Asian Tofu


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 package (14 ounces) extra-firm tofu


  • Whisk together first six ingredients. Cut tofu lengthwise into 3/8-in. thick slices; cut each slice in half diagonally to make triangles. Place tofu and marinade in a large resealable plastic bag; seal and turn to coat. Refrigerate 3-5 hours, turning occasionally
  • Preheat broiler. Reserving marinade, place tofu in a 15x10x1-in. pan. Drizzle remaining marinade over tops. Broil 5-6 in. from heat until lightly browned and heated through, about 10 minutes.

This tasty Asian tofu was the first meatless recipe my fiance made for me. It’s a wonderful light protein and is so easy to pair with broiled or grilled veggies such as eggplant, asparagus or even tomatoes. —Emily Steers, Los Angeles, California
