Sesame Soy Tofu

We love this tasty sesame soy tofu dish by dietician Caroline Trickey. It's so simple to make, you can eat alone as a simple meal or serve up with some tasty veggies and brown rice, or even as part of delicious buddha bowl.

Tofu is made using soya bean, in the traditional way of curdling, often used for milk and cheese. It's often used in many Asian recipes, and it compliments the soy and sesame flavours so well.

This dish is packed with protein, is anti-inflammatory, low in saturated fat and can assist with lowering bad cholesterol levels. Tofu also has a well balanced amino acid profile, along with plenty of fibre, potassium, magnesium, iron and copper - tofu really is a power house food, and we urge you to give this one a try and make tofu a weekly staple on your menu!


  • Olive Oil
  • 150g 'Silken Firm' Tofu sliced into chunks
  • 2 chopped Garlic Cloves
  • 3 tbsp Tamari Sauce
  • Dash of Sesame Oil (optional)
  • 2 tbsp chopped Coriander
  • 1 tbsp roasted Sesame Seeds


1. Add oil to your pan and add the tofu. Cook for 2 minutes on each side.

2. Add to the pan your chopped garlic, the tamari and a dash of water, along with the optional sesame oil, and cook for a further minute to let the sauce thicken.

3. Finally, serve topped with coriander and sesame seeds. This is also great with some warm brown rice and veggies.

Super simple, super tasty! Let us know if you give this one a try.
