Warm Tofu with Spicy Garlic Sauce

This is a very versatile dish that can be used for an appetizer, lunch or light dinner. I tend to keep the sauce on hand and make a quick snack out of it.

Ingredients

  • 1 (12 oz.) package of silken tofu
  • 1 tsp garlic minced and crushed
  • 1/4 cup scallions, chopped
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds, toasted
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 cups rice, hot and ready to serve with tofu

Instructions

  1. To warm your tofu you can either simmer it in a sauce pan with just enough water to cover or put it in the steamer basket of your rice maker while you make the rice to go along with it.
  2. Mince garlic and crush with the flat side of your knife to make a thick paste of it. Stir together with remaining ingredients minus the rice.
  3. Once your rice is ready carefully plate the tofu and rice and then top with sauce. Serve Immediately.
