This is a great super quick week day meal. Add with a side of greens and roasted veggies and it turns out to be an incredibly satisfying meal!
1 (14-ounce) block extra firm tofu
1 tablespoon white miso
6 tablespoons warm water
3 tablespoons finely grated ginger
Vegetable oil for frying
Scallions and sesame seeds for garnish (optional)
1. Drain and rinse tofu. Cut into pieces.
2. In a small bowl, mix together miso, water, and ginger.
3. Heat a little vegetable oil in a skillet. Fry tofu until golden on both sides. Reduce heat to low.
4. Pour miso mixture over and between tofu slices and cook until sizzling.
5. Just before serving, garnish with scallions and sesame seeds.
First off, I need to apologize for not blogging in a few weeks. I went on a one-week silent meditation retreat in Boston which was amazing……sigh…..I didn’t want to leave. Meditation is so important my friends…. (lightbulb!) I need to do a meditation blog! Okay, I have just added it to my blog list 😉
Anywho, I got back from Boston last week and it took me a few days just to turn on the computer – blogging seemed out of the question for a long time. But here I am! Back in the swings of things with all of the settledness felt during the retreat floating away….time to book another retreat 🙂
What was this blog about again? Ah yes, miso tahini tofu!
I made it last week (it was actually inspired by one of the MANY delicious meals from the retreat) and it was superb! AND waaaaay easy and quick! This is a must-try fo shiz!
1/4 cup tahini (don’t be a chump and buy it, super easy to make – I will post the recipe!)
1 tbsp miso
1-2 tbsp lemon juice
1/4-1/2 cup warm water (depends on how runny you want it)
1/4 nutritional yeast (optional)
1-2 tsp maple syrup (optional although I found it really brought out the flavour)
Mix all ingredients in food processer until smooth. Grill or bake tofu and pour sauce over tofu. Serve with your choice of grain and greens.
