This is a delicious tofu dish to try out with a bowl of steamed rice. Check out the recipe below 👇🏼
Recipe (yields 3 servings)
~ 1 pack 16oz firm tofu, drained & cut into cubes
~ 1 bunch of scallions (about 1/3 cup), cut into 1-inch long
~ 3 cloves garlic, sliced
~ 8-10 slices ginger
~ oil for pan-frying
~ your favorite cooked grain
~ 1 tablespoon soy sauce
~ 1 tablespoon stir fry sauce (see highlights for homemade version)
~ 3 teaspoons Chinese cooking wine/Michiu
~ 1 1/2 teaspoons organic sugar
~ 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
~ salt & white pepper to taste
~ 1 cup of veggie stock/water
✅Dry tofu cubes on paper towels, season with salt. Then, lightly coat all sides of tofu cubes with cornstarch & shallow pan-fry until golden brown. Place tofu on paper towels to absorb excess oil. Alternatively, spray oil on coated tofu cubes & bake at 490F until crispy on the outside (flip halfway). Set aside.
✅To braise, sauté ginger in 2 teaspoons oil on a non-stick pan/ceramic pot until ginger turns slightly crispy. Then add garlic & sauté until fragrant. Stir in sauce & cook for 1 minute until it thickens. Season accordingly to your preference.
✅Finally, add in tofu, scallions & gently stir tofu cubes until they are coated well with the sauce. Let simmer for another 1 minute. You may add a cornstarch slurry to thicken the sauce if needed.
🤤Serve warm with your favorite grain.
