Best Tofu Ever

The Best Tofu in the World!

Okiedokie, so here is a recipe for the BEST tofu in the world, yes that is quite the boast, but honestly this is the tofu you have been wanting to make; its crispy without being burned or fried, it goes perfectly with noodles, rice, quinoa and brussel sprouts (pictured) or can totally stand alone with some DLG (dark leafy greens).

 

The most important part of this situation is to have a hot pan. Seriously hot, and it would be a good idea to use non-stick or a very well-seasoned cast iron, everything else will lead to the shitty disasters I know we have all had with tofu. . . burning, sticking, falling apart and general nastiness will be a thing of the past, but you need to set yourself up for success. Tofu, oil and Braggs

 

 

Here are the goods:

1 Block Extra firm tofu cut into cubes

1 teaspoon toasted sesame seed oil

Braggs liquid aminos to taste, maybe like 2 tablespoons, (it tastes like soy sauce)

Brussel sprouts halved or quartered

Other things you like (fresh garlic is fantastic)

  1. Stir all that together and let it sit while the pan heats up.
  2. Let the pan get really hot and add the tofu, it should be pretty loud with sizzling.
  3. Let it sit for around 5 min cooking and then start to toss it around so all sides get brown and crispy. Tofu cooking
  4. Add the brussel sprouts and toss so they too get brown.
  5. After the tofu has come off the pan, maybe like 15 min or so of cooking, I add kale to the really hot pan and cover it with a lid for about 1 minute, it wilts and picks up some of the yummy brag taste.
  6. Pair with some quinoa or rice or couscous and you are set.Brussels and tofu

 

I make this at least once a week. Some days we add broccoli to the pan about half way through the tofu cooking and it turns out so tasty. Go forth and make stellar tofu and let me know how it goes.Yum
