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.

For sauce

  • 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)

For Grilling:

  • 1 block extra firm tofu


For sauce:

  • 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.

For grilling:

  • 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.
