Seared Spicy Sesame Tofu

Dinner | August 5, 2015 | By

This post is for everyone who refuses to eat tofu because of it’s texture. When I first stopped eating meat, I turned to tofu as it seemed like the obvious source of protein. This didn’t last long; with no idea how it cook it, I ended up with mushy chunks that you basically had to force down your throat. Needless to say, I was turned off tofu for a long time until I decided to give it a chance again recently. With the firmest tofu I could find at the store in hand, I was determined to make it taste good, or even edible. With this recipe, I actually enjoy tofu and no longer feel like an outcast vegetarian for shying away from it. 

Tofu (I used a 350g package of extra firm tofu)
2 green onions
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 tsp garlic power
2 tbsp hoisin sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil

1. Thinly slice your tofu width-wise and spread evenly into a dish. Blot any excess water on the tofu with a paper towel. DSC_0427 2. Mince the garlic and green onions and sprinkle over tofu, along with garlic powder, hoisin, soy sauce and a few dashes of cayenneDSC_0430 DSC_04323. Using your hands or tongs, make sure that each piece of tofu is evenly coated in the mixtureDSC_0436 4. In a large frying pan, heat the sesame oil. Add the tofu in one layer and cook for about 12 minutes, flipping every couple of minutes, until dry and browned. Enjoy!DSC_0437
