Tofu is such an amazingly versatile nutritious vegan food. As it comes varieties of silken, soft, medium, and firm tofu, it can be prepared and cooked in many different ways. It can be eaten raw, deep-fried, pan-fried, stir-fried, grilled or added to soups, stews, and salads. It is delicious on its own but absorbs flavors easily as well.
In this recipe, tofu squares are pan-fried, then braised in a rich miso-ginger sauce. The dish is topped off with a mixture of olive oil, chopped scallions, and sea salt. A sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds right on top adds a delicious crunch in every bite. This wonderful Asian pan-fried tofu with miso-ginger sauce is a healthy and delicious quick-meal, which is perfect on those exhaustingly busy days.
This recipe takes about 20 minutes to make. Serves 3 to 4.
• 1 block of soft tofu
• 2 tbsp grapeseed oil
• 1 heaping tbsp white miso paste
• 3 tsp low sodium soy sauce
• 1 tbsp honey
• ½ tsp grated ginger
• 1 cup of finely chopped green onions
• 1 tsp olive oil
• 1 tsp sea salt
• ½ tsp toasted sesame seeds
Cut the tofu in half, lengthwise and then slice into ½-inch thick squares.
To prepare the sauce, whisk together miso paste, soy sauce, honey, and ginger in a bowl.
Place chopped green onions in a bowl and drizzle olive oil on top.
Keep this in the refrigerator while you cook the tofu.
Heat grapeseed oil in a non-stick pan over medium-low heat.
Gently swirl the pan to make sure the bottom is well-coated with oil.
Arrange the tofu slices in the pan.
Fry the tofu for 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
Spoon half of the miso-ginger sauce on top on the tofu slices, then flip.
Spoon the remaining sauce on top of the tofu slices, then flip them again.
Gently stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes by flipping the tofu slices every 30 seconds.
Turn the heat off, then transfer the tofu slices to a serving plate.
Add sea salt to the green-onion and olive oil mixture, then stir well.
Spread the green onions on top of the pan-fried tofu.
Finally, sprinkle toasted sesame seeds on top and serve.
Ideas And Tips:
Aside from grapeseed oil, you can use peanut oil, corn oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, vegetable oil, almond oil or walnut oil.
You may substitute low-sodium soy sauce with tamari, Worcestershire sauce, Bragg liquid aminos, coconut aminos vegetable broth or mushroom sauce.
