Sesame Ginger Tofu by LorettaMach

  • 14 ounces Tofu, firm or extra firm
  • 1/3 cup Blue Agave or Honey
  • 3 tablespoons Tamari
  • 3 tablespoons Ginger, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Sesame Oil (use the variety that is not toasted)
  • 2 tablespoons Rice Vinegar
  • 2 cloves Garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/4 cup Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Canola Oil
  • 1/4 cup Sesame Seeds, lightly toasted
  • 6 Green Onions, chopped

  1. Press tofu with a Tofu press or a with two plates to get rid of the excess water.
  2. While your tofu is pressing, combine the blue agave (or honey), tamari, ginger, sesame oil, rice vinegar, garlic, and red pepper flakes in a sauce and bring to a simmer.
  3. Cube the tofu after you have drained the water. Dip the tofu in the flour lightly.
  4. Next you can either fry your tofu or bake it. It obviously tastes better fried but baking is much healthier and it is still quite tasty baked.
  5. To Fry: Fry the tofu in canola oil until golden brown.
  6. To Bake: I marinated the tofu for about 30 minutes before baking. Then I baked the tofu 30 minutes at 350.
