Teriyaki tofu

This is a simple meal which we all seem to like. I marinate plain firm tofu in purchased teriyaki sauce, sesame oil, and lots of ginger. It's best if it marinates most of the day, though you can get away with a couple hours minimum. Then I put it under the griller (broiler) until it's crispy on both sides, and add the leftover marinade to stirfried vegetables: here, snow peas.
This is the first bowl of rice made in my new rice cooker, a birthday present from DH. I never am able to make brown rice to my satisfaction on my stovetop, and I was very pleased with the results. So was my son, who for the first time in his life took two extra helpings of the rice, woo-hoo.

I used the leftover tofu in a delicious salad the next day: brown rice, avocado, tofu, moistened with Paul Newman's balsamic vinaigrette.

I'm going to make this tofu tonight! I have some extra tofu sitting in water in my fridge that needs to be used. I don't have snow peas only broccoli but otherwise it will be the same dinner :-)

Also, I've never oven-cooked tofu before, how western of you :-P

I'm so glad you have a rice cooker now for perfect rice every time!
