You think you don’t like tofu? Think again! On its own, tofu can be very bland, but this easy to make sauce transforms it. Tofu is marinated in a sauce of blackstrap molasses, soy sauce, apple juice, and seasoning. It's sweet, umami, garlicky, and a little spicy — perfect for serving with rice and vegetables.

Tofu is made from soy, which is genetically modified. It is not a healthy vegetarian option that has been promoted as a healthy alternative to meat. The healthy soy that the Japanese eat that protects against cancer is fermented soy. Do your own research and don't accept junk science as true, factual and good for you

I have never purchased tofu that has NOT said it was GMO free. Get real.

I love tofu ! A simple solution to its blandness is : to a slightly sautéed cubed tofu, sprinle soy sauce low salt, and lemon juice, dash of ground pepper. That's all, folks. Enjoy.

Looks yummy. But, How does this get a "garlicky taste" with no garlic?
