Teriyaki Glazed Tofu Steaks [Vegan]

Serves

2-3

Cook Time

15

Ingredients

For the Teriyaki Sauce:

  • 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon corn starch

For the Tofu Steaks:

  • 1 14-ounce block extra firm tofu
  • Oil, for coating the pan

Preparation

  1. Mix all the teriyaki sauce ingredients well.
  2. Cut the tofu block into about 1/2-inch thick slices.
  3. Coat a skillet with oil and warm up over medium-high heat.
  4. Add the tofu steaks. Depending on the skillet size, you will likely need to cook these in 2 batches.
  5. Flip and cook the tofu until it develops a golden-brown crust on both sides, repeat until all the tofu is cooked.
  6. Leave the last batch in the skillet and pour in half of the teriyaki sauce mix.
  7. Keep the heat on, coat, and flip the tofu steaks with the sauce as the sauce reduces, clarifies, and thickens, about 2 minutes.
  8. Repeat with the rest of the tofu steaks and the sauce.

Meyer Lemon Coconut Cream Tarts With Mint and Lavender [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]

To make the crust: put the oats and almonds into a high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick, slightly crumbly paste. If needed or desired, add a little maple syrup, then press into two tartlet molds or whatever shapes/molds you like. Put in the fridge. To make the lemon coconut cream: put the coconut and cashews into your high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick paste/butter. Stir in a 1/4 cup lemon juice and the maple syrup until evenly combined (or blend it in). If you'd like more lemon flavour, add more lemon juice! I like mine quite tart - no pun intended, seriously - so I used a full 1/2 cup. Spread this mixture evenly into your crusts, then let them sit in the fridge overnight or for at least a couple hours so the flavours can get to know each other. Garnish with mint, basil, lemon zest, maple syrup or whatever else you like! Life is good!
