Crispy tofu coated in a bold teriyaki sauce that is full of flavor. Serve over rice for a complete meal.


  • 3 tablespoons vegetarian teriyaki sauce
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sherry
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce (Optional)
  • ½ teaspoon ginger paste
  • 5 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 (14 ounce) package extra-firm tofu, pressed and cut into slices
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


Whisk teriyaki sauce, green onions, sherry, garlic, Sriracha sauce, and ginger paste together until smooth. Set aside.

Place cornstarch in a 1-gallon zip-top bag. Drop tofu slices into the bag, seal, and gently shake until all tofu is coated.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook tofu for 5 minutes. Flip with tongs and cook until browned on the second side, about 5 minutes more. Transfer the tofu to a plate and wipe the skillet clean.

Pour reserved sauce into the skillet and cook until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Return tofu to the skillet and toss to combine.

Transfer the tofu to serving plates and spoon sauce on top just before serving.
