Spicy Sesame Tofu

*Spicy Sesame Tofu       

I didn’t even press the tofu- which lends for a firmer texture, and it came out awesome. Fresh ginger would be and is AMAZING in this, I just didn’t have any in the house. I ate this with a big bowl of Sautéed Kale and Sprouted Quinoa, and my homemade Siracha Sauce. FRICKEN DELICIOUS.

        Spicy Sesame Tofu            

1-pound firm tofu, cut into cubes

2T extra virgin olive oil

1T tamari or shoyu

2t agave or maple syrup

½ of one fresh hot pepper or 1/2t hot pepper flakes

1 clove garlic, smashed and minced

2T nutritional yeast

1t hot sesame oil

1/4t pink salt

2T un-hulled sesame seeds

*fresh ginger

In a large skillet or frying pan, heat up the oil and add the garlic, hot pepper and sesame seeds and sauté just until barely golden. Add in the tofu and pan fry over medium high heat, tossing often to brown all sides- about 6 minutes. Add in the tamari or shoyu and coat the tofu well by tossing the tofu around the hot pan- almost until the tofu appears dry. Add in the sweetener and the hot sesame oil and continue to toss. In the last moments of cooking, add in the nutritional yeast and coat the tofu. Serve hot or cold.

*Fresh ginger is AMAZING in this. Add in 1” piece- grated when sautéing the garlic.
