Tofu with Soy Sauce and Sesame Oil

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.

Tofu with Asian Dressing

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

  • 14oz 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

  1. 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.
  2. 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!
