RECIPE: Easy Teriyaki Sauce & Tofu Stir Fry

RECIPE:  Easy Teriyaki Sauce

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 4 servings


1/2 cups soy sauce or tamari. (Please try to buy these organic)
1/4 cup + 1 T mirin (Japanese cooking wine)
1 1/2 T maple syrup
1/4 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp garlic
1/2 T arrowroot (this is used as a thickening agent.)
Teriyaki Tofu Stir Fry
1 pkg extra firm tofu (please try to buy this organic)
5-6 handfuls of spinach
2 cups cooked quinoa
teriyaki dressing


In a sauce pan, mix all the ingredients on low heat for about 5-7 minutes.
Transfer to a mason jar.

RECIPE:   Teriyaki Tofu Stir Fry 

Preheat oven to 375.

Cut the tofu in cubes and place into a container.

Pour the teriyaki mixture into the container and let it marinate for at least an hour.

When it’s done marinating, use a slotted spoon to scoop up the tofu and lay it on a lined baking sheet.

Bake for about 35-45 minutes, stopping halfway through to flip and brush more sauce on the tofu.

Once the tofu is done, set it aside.

In a large saucepan, heat the cooked quinoa with the remaining sauce.
Turn down, cover and simmer for about 5-7 minutes.

Lastly add the spinach and cook just until it is slightly wilted.

Uncover and let the remaining sauce boil off. Top with the roasted tofu. Enjoy!

The mixture will thicken slightly in the fridge. When ready to use, you can try the quinoa dish. If tofu isn’t your thing, feel free to use your favorite protein.
