Tropical Lime Tofu Recipe

Tropical Lime Tofu Recipe


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds (optional)
  • 1 cake of firm tofu (about 16 ounces), cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper or red pepper flakes

  1. In a large skillet on medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. Add the garlic and cumin seeds, if using, and cook for 1 minute.
  2. Add the tofu cubes and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly golden, about 8 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together the ground cumin, lime juice, soy sauce, and pepper.
  4. When the tofu is golden, pour the lime juice mixture over it and cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has been absorbed, about 6 minutes.
