Serves: 4 People

  • 1 pound firm tofu
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • (Marinade)
  • 1 tablespoon ginger juice
  • ½ tablespoon tamari soy sauce
  • ½ cup brown rice vinegar
  • ½ cup toasted sesame oil
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 cloves shredded garlic
  1. After draining, cut tofu into 1-inch squares.
  2. Combine ginger juice, tamari, vinegar, oil, cilantro and garlic in a medium-sized bowl.
  3. Add tofu to marinade and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  4. Heat olive oil and sesame oil in a skillet.
  5. Add tofu and quick stir-fry until tofu becomes golden brown.
Try pressing the tofu 15-60 minutes. This will increase the ability of the tofu to absorb flavor and will make the tofu crispier. To press tofu, place it in a strainer over a bowl. Cover tofu with a plate and place a heavy object on top, pressing the tofu.
To make ginger juice, grate about 2 inches of ginger into a piece of cheesecloth or a dishtowel. Wrap the cloth or towel around the ginger and squeeze into bowl.
