    2 tbsp soy sauce
    3 tbsp rice vinegar
    2 tbsp sesame oil
    1 tsp white pepper

    ¾ cup Sunrise Unsweetened Soya Beverage 1.89L

    1. Wrap tofu in paper towel and press excess water out by weighing down with a heavy pan for 10 minutes, removing as much liquid as possible.
    2. Combine marinade ingredients together in an 8×8” square baking pan. Slice tofu into four rectangular “steaks”. Place in a single layer in the marinade, flip once and let sit 20-30 minutes.
    3. Remove tofu from marinade, drain off excess liquid.
    4. Combine all the breading ingredients except the panko in a bowl until it is a thick slurry. Dip each tofu steak into the slurry, drain off excess and then coat in panko.
    5. Bake at 400°F for 20 minutes, flipping over halfway through cooking. If using air-fryer, air fry for 15-17minutes, flipping over halfway through. For deep frying, deep fry at 375°F for 4 minutes, flipping halfway through.
    6. Serve with rice and Tonkatsu sauce.
