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⁣⁣

✅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.
