Marinated Tofu Appetizers

This recipe is incredibly easy and so delicious!

1 block of extra-firm tofu
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 tsp powdered ginger
1/2 tsp powdered garlic
olive oil for sautéing

Cut tofu into 3/4 inch cubes. In a tupperware container or ziplock bag, mix the soy sauce, ginger, and garlic. Add the tofu, close the container, and then shake to coat the tofu. Let the mixture marinate for 2 hours or more, shaking every 15 minutes or so.

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat with a little olive oil. Add the tofu with the marinade to the skillet, and sauté until the tofu is lightly browned. The soy sauce will evaporate in the heat, and will leave a dark and a little bit crispy coating on the tofu. Insert toothpicks, and serve immediately for a tasty appetizer, maybe with a little fresh mint or basil as garnish.
