Cold Soft Tofu with Soy Sauce and Sesame Oil in Dish

I feel sorry for Tofu.

Because first of all, it was named “tofu.”

Can you think of a less sexy-sounding word than tofu?

I sure can’t.

And second of all, I feel sorry for tofu because it’s often written off as a tasteless health food for barefoot-in-the-grass hippie people.

But tofu is great.

…it is!!!

I eat this dish all the time in the summer and I swear it’s more refreshing than a popsicle on a hot day.

It’s simple, tasty, cold, and yes, it’s healthy!

Ingredients

  • 14 oz block of soft or medium tofu don't use firm tofu here
  • 2 scallions sliced
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tbsp sriracha

Instructions 

  • Whisk to combine the scallions, soy sauce, sesame oil, sesame seeds, rice vinegar, and sriracha. Take a little taste and make any adjustments you want to suit your own tastes.
  • Slice the tofu into squares and bathe the tofu in the asian dressing. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour so the tofu can absorb the flavors and also get super cold. Eat and enjoy! See? It’s good stuff!
