The easiest Tofu Poke ever! It’s like traditional Hawaiian Poke but made with tofu for an easy vegan vegetarian meal.
Tofu poke is one of my go-to meals when I’m too lazy to cook, and it’s my go-to recipe whenever there’s a church potluck.
I’ve tried making this recipe using only tofu, soy sauce, sesame oil, onions, and salt, but adding the sesame seeds, green onions, and sriracha mayo give it that Hawaiian flavor.
Keep in mind, there are so many variations of tofu poke, but here’s my version of it. 🙂
