Weeknight Dinner


  • 1 block of extra firm tofu; drained, pressed, and cut into cubes.

    I like to press my tofu for about 30 minutes so it will soak up all of that good flavor!

  • 13 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or honey if not vegan)
  • 2 tablespoons tamari (low sodium)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 12-1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1412 tsp red pepper flakes
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil


  1. Mix together all of the ingredients except for tofu and oil in a dish. Place tofu in marinade, gently tossing to make sure it is covered. Let marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes. I do this in the morning so it’s ready to cook when I get home.
  2. Heat oil in a non-stick skillet, add in tofu (not marinade), and cook on medium heat for 7-10 minutes, turning tofu a couple of times, until browned.
  3. Add marinade to the pan, and cook until evaporated.
  4. I serve this with pasta or couscous, and a veggie or salad. This recipe would also be good in meal prep.
