Serves:
2
Prep Time: 30 minutes 
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients: 

  • 300g firm tofu, sliced thinly 
  • 1/4 cup dark soy sauce 
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed 
  • 1 spring onion stalk, sliced thinly
  • 1cm piece of ginger, grated 
  • 1/2 tsp sesame seeds 
  • 1/2 lime, juiced 

Directions: 

  1. Slice the tofu in thin strips and lay flat on a chopping board. Place a paper towel over the top of the tofu and press down to draw out any excess water. Flip the tofu on the other side and repeat with a fresh tea towel. 
  2. If the tofu still looks watery, do the same as above but place a heavy object (frying pan, canned goods) on top and allow to draw out for 15 minutes. 
  3. Add all ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix well. Leave to marinate for 15 minutes. 
  4. Add a small touch of olive oil to a non stick pan and heat over a medium heat. 
  5. Add the tofu to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until lightly golden brown. 
  6. Add to a stir-fry, rice bowl or any of your favourite combos and EAT!
