Maple Bourbon Tofu
1-1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup sesame oil
5 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons minced, pickled ginger, minced
2 blocks (1lb. ea.) firm tofu, each block cut into three lengthwise strips
1 cup dry stout beer
1/2 to 3/4 cup soy creamer, to taste
1. Add the OJ, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger together, and marinate 2 sliced blocks of tofu how you like. (I like to slice each block into three thin sheets and marinate them overnight.)
2. Remove tofu from marinade and pan fry or grill. Get a nice brown coating on the tofu. (Because the tofu is coated in sesame oil, you don’t need any more oil.)
3. When the tofu is done, deglaze the pan with the vegan stout beer. Add marinade and reduce significantly, by about half.
4. Add soy creamer to sauce and pour over tofu.
