10-Minute Tofu Appetizer
In this recipe, I'm using a 12-ounce package of tofu, but it works with larger packages of tofu, too. There should be enough sauce for a 14 or 16-ounce package.
soft or silken tofu
large garlic cloves
or any neutral oil
use tamari if gluten free
stalk of scallions
toasted sesame seeds
Remove the tofu out of the package and drain the water. Slice the tofu into 1/4-inch slices. If you want more bite-sized pieces of tofu, you can chop it into 1/2-inch cubes.
Place the minced garlic in a small bowl.
Heat the safflower oil in a small saucepan for about a minute over medium heat. When the oil is hot, turn of the heat. Pour the oil over the garlic. You should be able to hear the garlic sizzle.
Add the soy sauce (or tamari), rice vinegar, and sesame oil to the garlic oil. Stir to combine.
Pour some of the garlic sauce onto the tofu. You can use as much of the sauce as you like. Top tofu with chopped scallions and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
