As you may already know, I've declared my love for Zevia soda from the rooftops. With that being said, I am continuing my Zevia recipe series with this soda tofu recipe. This came out amazing on the griddle, however it can be done in a pan or even baked in the oven. The Zevia soda makes a delightful crusted coating on the tofu and adds sweetness to the recipe without adding sugar or extra calories. This is a great recipe for when you are trying to eat lighter or to fuel up on protein before or after the gym. We enjoyed this tofu with brown rice and a side of broccoli, however you can even make this tofu by itself as an appetizer. You may even want to make this tomorrow for game day.
