Extra Firm Tofu
Sticky Orange Sauce
Tamari Soy Sauce
or 1 tbsp Tamari plus 1 tsp of Soy Sauce
or Agave Nectar
Extra Firm Tofu (8 oz)
and place between two clean kitchen towels. Use something heavy ( I used a cookbook) to put on top of your tofu to press for at least 5 minutes.
In the meantime, stir
Corn Starch (1 tsp)
Water (1/2 Tbsp)
and set aside.
Garlic (2 cloves)
and add it to a small saucepan over low heat with the juice of 1/2 a
Tamari Soy Sauce (2 Tbsp)
Rice Vinegar (1 Tbsp)
Honey (2 Tbsp)
Ground Ginger (1/4 tsp)
. Bring your sauce up to a simmer and stir in cornstarch/water mixture. Stir occasionally.
Once most of the liquid is drained from your tofu, cut it into thin strips. You can now choose to either cube the tofu or cut it into triangles as pictured. Coat your tofu pieces in
Olive Oil (1 Tbsp)
, then sprinkle
Corn Starch (1 tsp)
on both sides.
Get a frying pan with olive oil hot before carefully placing your tofu flat on the pan to fry. Allow your tofu to cook until golden brown on both sides — usually about 2 minutes on each side.
Transfer your tofu onto a paper towel and dab off any excess oil. Coat with the sauce and garnish with
Sesame Seeds (to taste)
just before serving over rice or noodles.
