Tools Used in this Recipe

  • Cutting board with juice groove or flat plate
  • lint free towel or paper towels
  • slicing knife
  • glass container large enough for the bites (quart size jar works well)


  • 1 lb tofu preferably organic sprouted tofu
  • 2 Tbls fresh lime juice juice from 1 lime
  • 2 Tbls onion/garlic blend or nutritional yeast
  • 2–3 tsps sweet white miso or chickpea miso


  • Remove the tofu block from the package and set on a cutting board, preferably one with a juice groove to catch the excess water. There will be a fair amount of watery liquid, so have a towel or some paper towels available.
  • Next, cut the block to 1/2 in square pieces. Cut horizontally through the block in 1/2 in pieces. It should make 3–4 horizontal slices.
  • Place the slices between a lint free towel or paper towels to soak up the excess water.
  • Stack them back again to form the original block shape.
  • Cut down vertically in 1/2 in increments. Then cut the other direction in 1/2 increments to get all 1/2in × 1/2in pieces
  • Soak up as much water as possible so it doesn’t dilute the mixture coming up.
  • Label and date the mason jar. or similar sized glass container with tight fitting lid.
  • In the jar, add the lime juice, onion/garlic blend or nutritional yeast, and miso and blend together thoroughly. Add the tofu squares to the jar, cover with the lid, and invert a few times to coat the tofu squares.
  • Let marinate in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight before using to allow the tofu cubes to absorb the flavors.
  • Store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
