Korean Barbecue Tofu

This tasty Korean recipe is flavoured with soy sauce, mustard and spices. The resulting dish makes them quite irresistible. Served with rice/rice noodles, they are perfect for a light and refreshing meal.

Tofu is a plant based protein and has about 22 grams of protein per half cup serving. This nutrient powerhouse is rich in calcium, iron, B vitamins, fibre, potassium and magnesium. This vegan dish is a great way to add tofu to your meal rotation.

I left the tofu marinating overnight in the fridge. It just takes a few minutes to make the marinade and it’s ready to be fried whenever you want it. Super easy and delicious.

I used Basmati rice, but you could use any type of white rice. This recipe is from the book Tofu Cookery by Louise Hagler.
