Learning how to marinate tofu can help to bring your dishes to the next level—and it doesn’t have to be difficult. This marinated tofu recipe is simple but oh-so-tasty.

Prep & Cook Time: 10 minutes + 30 minutes marinating time

Serves: 3–4


  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 300 g firm tofu, diced
  • ½ tsp arrowroot powder


  1. Mix all ingredients (except tofu and arrowroot powder) in a mixing bowl until well combined.
  2. Add tofu and allow to marinate, covered, in the fridge for 30 minutes (leave in the fridge for longer for a stronger flavour).
  3. Strain tofu, but do not discard the marinade. Add arrowroot powder to the marinade and combine well. Set aside.
  4. Sauté tofu in a frypan until golden brown, then add marinade until mixture thickens.
  5. Serve in salads, sushi rolls, rice dishes or Vietnamese rolls.
