Garlic Tofu Cubes

This dish has been a family favorite for many years. Rob and I were down visiting with our sons recently and garlic tofu was on the menu. 

Serves 4 - 6


320g firm tofu*
1/4 cup plain flour
1 heaped tablespoon garlic powder*
1 tablespoon approx of braggs aminos* or light soy sauce
3 tablespoon olive/vegetable oil


  Cut the slab of tofu into cubes. Sprinkle flour on tofu and toss to coat, shake off excess

  Heat oil in a non stick pan, add tofu and lightly brown on all sides

Remove tofu from fry pan and place in a bowl to cool.  When tofu has become cold add garlic powder, toss to coat. Tofu cubes must be cold otherwise the garlic powder will not stick to the tofu.  Drizzle braggs aminos over garlic cubes turning with a spoon to incorporate soy sauce.

Place cubes back in the pan and lightly pan fry for a couple of minutes. Serve with rice or noodles. If there is left over tofu it is nice the next day in a sandwich.

*Tofu is available in most supermarkets. This recipe requires firm tofu. Once tofu has been removed from its sealed packet it must be used, or placed in a container and put in the fridge. Make sure tofu is covered with cold water. Change water daily. May last up to a week in the fridge once opened.

*Garlic powder is available in the spice section in the supermarket or health stores. Do not confuse this with garlic salt. 

*Braggs Liquid Aminos : is a healthy alternative to soy and Tamari sauce. Made from non-GMO soybeans with no preservatives or additives. Not fermented. Use in place of soy sauce.  Available only in health food stores.

Every hydrolyzed protein contains MSG as the MSG is a byproduct of the hydrolyzation process. As a hydrolyzed protein product, Bragg Amino Acids do contain MSG. MSG acts as a neurotropic drug in your body, meaning it affects your nervous system.
