With this recipe we show you how you can easily spice up your tofu with just a few ingredients.
You will notice that self-marinated tofu is much more aromatic and high-quality than ready-seasoned tofu from the supermarket. Many ready-to-eat tofu dishes from the supermarket often do not contain high-quality sea salt and contain added flavors, sunflower oil, sugar and unhealthy preservatives.
Did you know that tofu has been eaten for over 2’000 years? Originally, tofu comes from China and consists of clotted soy milk. “To” in Chinese means “bean” and “fu” stands for “coagulate”. Not only can it be prepared in a variety of delicious ways, it is also very healthy. Tofu provides vegetable protein and fiber, which saturate for a long time. It also contains many important minerals.
You can combine your marinated tofu wonderfully with brown rice or millet.
