Last week, I was super pumped when I found a whole package of organic tofu for less than nz$4!!! If that ain’t a steal, then I don’t know what is 🙂 I was more than pleased!
Since Alex is arriving the day after tomorrow, I figured that tonight would be a good night to have it for dinner Better hid the evidence… 😉
Seriously I just want to bite into it! I try and stay away form soy products, but I just think that tofu tastes…..so…..GOOD!!
I would indeed get immense joy from just chomping at that chunk, but I decided to make it taste even better by marinading it.
To make the Honey-Curry Marinade, I mixed together:
- 1 tsp honey
- 1/8 cup soymilk
- 1/8 cup oil
- 2 tsp shredded coconut
- 1 heaping tsp of curry powder
I sliced the block, dipped the pieces in the marinade, placed them in a pan, and poured the remaining juices on top.
I let it marinade in the fridge allllll afternoon.
Meanwhile, I had a fairly productive day, doing lots of work for teaching and Skyping with Dominique (the genius behind my “how to resist sweets” tips). She was even there to witness my afternoon snack. An apple and p’nut butt-!
I also did my dorm room strength training routine since I realized I hadn’t done anything active yet today! Oy.
Dinner time rolled around, I pan-fried the tofu until it crispified on the edges.
Then I took the leftover marinade and sauteed the veggies in it: 1 small onion, some broccoli, and a carrot. I microwaved the carrot and broccoli before so that they were already softened a bit. It saves a lot of time!

Dinner is served!
Do you have a good tofu-marinade?
