Golden-crusted Sesame Seeded Tofu

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces extra-firm tofu, drained and pat dry
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 4 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  1. Pat the tofu dry, and slice into 1/2-inch by 1-inch batons. Gently toss the tofu with the soy sauce, and allow to sit for a couple of minutes. Pour the seeds onto a plate. Pick up a tofu baton, dip one side into the seeds, and transfer to a another plate. Repeat with all the tofu batons.
  2. This is one of the few cases where I prefer to use a non-stick pan. Alternately, a very well-seasoned cast iron pan will work. Heat the oil over medium-high heat, and arrange the tofu, seeded side down, in the pan. Cook until golden on the bottoms, 4-5 minutes. Brown the remaining sides, and remove from skillet. Serve as is, or as pictured (over flash-boiled green beans), to top off a rice bowl, or over whatever roasted vegetables you might have going!
