Yumo knows vegetarian loves smoothy sweety teriyaki sauce. However, if you have tried many restaurants tofu teriyaki may with different versions. Some are super sweet, some very spicy, most are deliciously salty. Now Yumo is giving out the ultimate tofu teriyaki recipe. We just want to create something special for you!

The crispy teriyaki tofu recipe is better than takeout and easy enough for a weeknight dinner! Asian tofu dressed with sticky sweet and savoury teriyaki sauce. It is a perfect match with plain soft and fluffy bao bun for a knock-your-socks-off vegan meal!

Yumo believes this version is better than every restaurant version you have ever tried.

Here is how it’s done!

First, add boiling water to the saucepan until it’s about 1/3 full. Then line the inside of the steamer with the steaming parchment paper and place the bao bun on top of the parchment paper side by side, and cover the steamer with a lid.

Heat the water at medium/high, and steam the buns for about 8-10 minutes, until their textures are soft and fluffy.

Then carefully remove the steamer from the heat and place it in a warm spot.

While steaming the bao buns, remove the tofu pieces from the pack. Drizzle some vegetable oil on a frying pan prior to placing the tofu pieces on the pan and heat at medium-high.

Pan-fry the tofu cubes, gently turning the pieces for even coverage for approximately 1-2 minutes, then pour the house special teriyaki sauce over the tofu.

Continue to fry for 4-5 minutes until the sauce has thickened and the tofu cubes are evenly coated in the teriyaki sauce.

Once the steamed bao buns and teriyaki tofu are ready, spread the pickled cabbage on the inside of each bao bun, placing two cubes of teriyaki tofu on top as a base filling.

Place the bao buns on a warm plate. Next, sprinkle a quarter portion of chopped spring onions, crispy fried onions and ground peanuts to garnish the tofu filling for the bao.

Repeat the process by garnishing the remaining bao buns with an equal measure of condiments 4-6 as you prefer. The five-layered teriyaki tofu bao buns are now ready to serve!
