Teriyaki Tofu Recipe

Teriyaki is a cooking technique used in Japanese cuisine. ‘Teri’ means glaze and ‘yaki’ means to broil/grill. Usually meat or fish is broiled or grilled with a glaze of soy sauce and sugar giving it a glossy look. I have given a healthy twist to the Teriyaki by making it oil free, refined sugar and dairy free. Sesame seeds are filled with so many nutrients and it gives the required crunch to the dish. A quick starter than can be cooked over a stove top in less than ten minutes. A perfect starter to your weekend parties. You can try the same recipe with Paneer, Cauliflower, Broccoli and also with mixed vegetables.  Tofu, Dark soy sauce, Brown Sugar (Demerara Sugar), Honey, Sesame seeds (Til seeds), Sriracha sauce, Spring Onion Greens   200 grams Tofu , cubed 1/4 cup Dark soy sauce 2 teaspoon Brown Sugar (Demerara Sugar) 1-1/2 teaspoon Honey 1 teaspoon Sesame seeds (Til seeds) , lightly toasted 2 teaspoons Sriracha sauce , or any chilli sauce (optional) 3 sprigs Spring Onion Greens , finely chopped     10   15     To begin making the Teriyaki Tofu recipe, heat a medium size wide pan.
