Soy-glazed sesame tofu

From the October Issue of All You Magazine


  • scallions, chopped
  • cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 12-oz. package extra firm tofu, drained, cut into 8 slices
  1. Directions
  2. 1. In a small bowl, stir scallions, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, sesame seeds, red pepper flakes and honey.
  1. 2. Warm vegetable oil over medium-high heat in a large nonstick skillet. Pat tofu dry and add to skillet. Cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides, 8 minutes total.
  1. 3. Spoon sauce mixture over tofu, cover pan and turn off heat. Let stand 3 minutes. Transfer slices to a serving platter and serve immediately.

Cook's Notes
  • 1. Add brown rice with chopped cilantro and steamed snow peas as sides or a salad with sesame dressing.
  • 2. The cheapest place to find sesame oil is an Asian market. The cheapest place to find tofu is usually Trader Joe's.
  • 3. I think this will become a Meatless Monday staple in our house. 
  • 4. Also, you might want to cut the tofu into smaller slices for easier chopstick handling.
