INGREDIENTS













  • 1 block extra firm tofu










  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce










  • ½ cup flour










  • ¼ cup sesame oil










  • ¼ cup sesame seeds










  • ¼ cup chopped green onions, option










  1. Cut tofu in half width-wise, then cut into slightly-less-than centimeter-wide slices. Turn your slices, and cut diagonally, into triangles. Drain them, as described above.



  2. Dip triangles in soy sauce and then dredge in flour.



  3. Heat oil in wok or frying pan, then add tofu triangles and gently fry on both sides. If you have trouble flipping them, try using a fork instead of a spatula.



  4. Remove tofu from wok.



  5. In the same pan, lightly fry the sesame seeds until golden brown. Add a few drops of soy sauce and stir once more in the pan.



  6. Add the tofu back into the wok and gently toss together.



  7. Serve with brown rice, steamed or sauteed vegetables and dipping sauce (if desired – but everybody loves to dip, in my experience!).

This was an easy and quick recipe. I made a spicey orange sauce and brown rice. Accompanied it with stir fried baby bok choy. Excellent dish. It would go equally well with a Thai peanut sauce. It definitely will become a regular in my house.

We made this recipe for dinner on a recent busy weeknight. First of all, it's fast. Second, it's easy. I saute tofu a lot, but I had never fried it before, and it was a breeze. Third, it's delicious. Crunchy sesame tofu will become a regular part of our dinner menu rotation.
