as in, for too long?
i started soaking teryaki tofu (frozen then thawed then cooked for 5 minutes in the hot marinade and sitting in it since then, in case it makes any difference) around lunch time for dinner tonight, but we ended up eating out instead. i'm guessing it would be fine for lunch or dinner tomorrow. it's not going to, like, disintegrate into just marinade with little tofu floaties, right?! what's the longest you've left your 'fu and did it turn out ok?

I'm pretty sure it will be fine, probably extra tasty too!

I've left tofu in my fridge to marinate for over a day and it was fine. The only thing is if you store opened tofu you are supposed to change the water everyday so if you leave it for more then one day I might think about changing out the marinade.

I have left it in marinade for several days with no issues. I also never change the water. I live on the edge.

I've over marinaded mine before and it was gross. But it was probably the marinade itself.

You can over marinate tempeh. I made the red wine kalamata tempeh from AFR and it was so gross after marinating overnight (the recipe doesn't tell you to marinate it that long, life just happened). You could get drunk off the fumes.

I'd say it depends on your marinade. Worst case, it will just be really super strong. This may or may not be a good thing. If you are marinating in wine, maybe not so great.

My school made this miso martinated tofu that was definitely completely dark all the way through and over-marinated and it changed my life for the better.
