Teriyaki Marinade

Eggplant Teriyaki recipe

A well-flavored marinade, this adds an Asian spin to grilled, stir-fried, or sautéd tofu, tempeh, and seitan. It also enhances vegetables, including eggplant, broccoli, green beans, scallions, carrots, and mushrooms. Use it to pan-sauté or grill vegetables and plant proteins.

  • 1/4 cup sake or white wine
  • 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons natural granulated sugar or agave nectar
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar or other mild vinegar
  • 1 to 2 cloves crushed or minced garlic, optional
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh or jarred ginger, or to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste

    This marinade is so easy to make and tastes so much better than store bought teriyaki sauce. I used olive oil and brown sugar because that is what I had and it was still great!
