A few months ago I discovered a new recipe that quickly became one my favorite meals. I love tofu, but never really knew how I would make it myself but with google only a finger tap away, I have learned a million ways to incorporate tofu into my meals. I am not vegan or vegetarian and do not supplement tofu for meat, I simply like it as I do any other ingredient. So for the garlic tofu recipe, the ingredients are:

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce (I use the less sodium one)
  • Green onion (one stalk)
  • Vegetable of your choice (I use green beans or broccoli)
  • Extra firm tofu (one, pat completely dry before slicing)
  • 1 cup rice (or however much you need)



  1. Slice the tofu into 1 inch slices, mix the sauces together and stir in garlic then add the tofu pieces and marinade for an hour at least
  2. Cook rice as instructed or as preferred (I use coconut oil in boiling water,  a dash of salt and pepper to make it flavorful)
  3.  Once the tofu has been marinated, heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large pan or wok on medium heat and add the tofu evenly.
  4. Let it cook without stirring, for five minutes or until browned on one side, then flip onto the other side to brown.
  5. In the last 2 minutes of cooking, add the green onion (sliced) and stir to mix in with the tofu
  6. Serve with rice and vegetable of choice
  7. Bon apetite!
