Tonight for dinner we enjoyed Sesame Tofu with Avocado Rice.  It was simple and quick to make, always my favorite.

Sesame Tofu

There are two options here to make this, the quick way or the marinating way.  The first way is the quick way and the second is the marinating way.  The second one is good for more flavors for your tofu and the second is good when you forgot to marinate and you’re in a hurry.

Ingredients/Tools

Directions

  1. Spray fry pan with cooking spray
  2. Cut tofu, on cutting board with knife, into bite size chunks
  3. Place in frying pan (don’t place on stovetop yet)
  4. In the small mixing bowl combine: sesame oil, peanut butter & salt
  5. Using the fork stir until it turns into a liquid sauce
  6. Pour the sauce over the tofu, make sure everything is coated well
  7. Place lid on top, cook on medium for 15-30 minutes, stirring occasionally with rubber spatula (Depends on your desired texture and firmness)
  8. Place on dinner plate and enjoy
