Soy-and-Citrus-Marinated Tofu Burger from Angelo Sosa, Social Eatz
Prep Time
Cook Time
Total time: 10 hours
  • 1 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1⁄2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 pound firm tofu, sliced lengthwise into 4 equal pieces
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha
  • 3⁄4 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 potato buns
  • Iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • Red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, thinly sliced
  • Cilantro sprigs
  1. Whisk together soy sauce and lime juice in a large, shallow dish and set aside.
  2. Preheat a grill over high heat. Season the tofu with salt and pepper. Lightly oil, then place on the grill. Sear the tofu for 2 minutes on each side. Place the seared tofu in the reserved marinade, cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  3. Remove the tofu from the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature, about 45 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the Sriracha and mayonnaise until well combined. Set aside.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350°. Place the tofu on a sheet pan and heat in the oven until warm, about 5 minutes. Place the buns on another sheet tray and toast in the oven until warm, about 2 minutes.
  6. To assemble, spread the Sriracha mayonnaise on both sides of the toasted bun. On the bottom bun, place the lettuce, tofu, red onion, jalapeño slices and cilantro sprigs. Finish with the top bun and serve right away.
