Sesame crusted tofu

Yields 6 portions.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This recipe gives you tofu that's ready to eat as is, in a poke bowl with the dressing of your choice or in a stir fry with the marinade used in this recipe.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Ingredients

1 package extra-firm tofu

2 oranges, juiced

6 tablespoons low sodium tamari sauce

2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger

3 cloves garlic, chopped

1 green onion, sliced

2 tablespoons sesame seeds

2 tablespoons sesame oil

2 tablespoons peanut oil

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Cut the tofu in cubes and drain with paper towels for 30 minutes. See my story for the method.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Add the orange juice, sesame oil, chopped garlic and tamari sauce in a shallow container. Add the drained cubes and let them marinate for 30 minutes minimum.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Just before cooking the tofu, add the sesame seeds and mix well. Heat a pan at medium with the peanut oil. Fry the tofu and turn frequently until golden, for about 8 to 10 minutes. Add sliced green onions before serving.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

If you want to use the cooked tofu in a stir fry, add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch to the marinade and mix well. Add it to the cooked tofu and cooked vegetables before serving.
