Notes

  1. Make sure tofu is completely covered in marinade and that you allow it to sit in the marinade for a minimum of 10 minutes. The longer you're able to allow the tofu to sit in the marinade the more flavorful it will become. You could even allow the tofu to marinate overnight.
  2. Cut the vegetables and tofu into even bites. This will allow for a more even cook.
  3. Store leftovers in the refrigerator in an air tight container for up to 4 days.
