Mmm…Marvolous Miso Marinade!
This simple, pro-biotic rich, miso sauce can be used in your weeknight stir-fries, drizzled over roasted or steamed veggies or added to lift your grain bowls. Here we have taken it and used it as a tofu marinade and then grilled the tofu steaks on the BBQ.

- 2 tbsp sesame oil
- 2 tbsp Miso paste
- 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp coconut aminos (use another tbsp of Bragg’s or Tamari if no aminos)
- 1 tsp honey (optional)
- 1 tbsp fresh grated ginger
- 1 clove garlic, peeled
- 1/4-1/2 tsp red chilli flakes (optional)
- 1 block extra firm tofu
- Add all ingredients into your immersion blender cup or small blender bowl and blend until smooth. Add water if you want it thinner.
- Add more honey if you want it a little sweeter, more rice vinegar for some tang or more coconut aminos or Bragg’s/tamari for saltiness.
- Slice tofu into steaks or long strips if doing on the grill. Alternatively, you could cube the tofu and cook in a fry pan or in the oven.
- Place the tofu into a container along with the miso marinade and let sit for an hour or 2.
- Scoop out the tofu steaks and Cooke them on the BBQ until heated through and then place hot tofu back into the container of marinade, toss, and serve.
- Alternatively, you could try this in a fry pan on medium heat until tofu is cooked and then place back into the sauce and mix and serve or bake in oven on 400F on a parchment lined cookie sheet about 20-25 minutes and again, return to marinade, mix and serve.
- You can also take this sauce and drizzle it on roasted veggies, grain bowls or use in a stir-fry.
