STICKY SESAME CRISPY TOFU 😍 by @alexafuelednaturally
1 package Extra firm tofu
1/4 cup corn starch
Sesame sticky Sauce:
1 teaspoon avocado oil
2 garlic cloves minced
2 tbsp organic brown sugar or coconut sugar
2 tsp rice vinegar
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp Tamari or soy sauce (I use low sodium)
1/4 cup organic ketchup
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
2 tbsp sesame seeds
sliced green onions for garnish
White or brown rice to serve
Any other veggies to serve with! I steamed kale and broccolini
1.Remove tofu from package and wrap in a couple paper towels gently pressing on tofu to release a bit of the moisture. Cut tofu into cubes then roll each tofu cube in corn starch making sure each side is coasted.
2.Bring a hot skilled to medium heat and add enough avocado oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Once hot, add cubed tofu and cook on each side until golden & crispy. Season with salt and once removed from pan place on a plate lined with paper towel.
3. In a bowl combine all sauce ingredients (except garlic & avo oil) mix to combine. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add the sauce mixture and bring to a simmer. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until just thickened.
4. Add the crispy tofu to the pan and toss to coat with the sauce. Sprinkle with sesame more seeds and green onions, then serve with rice & steamed veg!
