Ingredients
  

Crispy Tofu

  • 16 oz. extra firm tofu in water
  • 2 Tbsp. canola, vegetable, or peanut oil

Korean Sesame-Soy Dipping Sauce

  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce (use wheat/gluten-free if needed)
  • 1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. mirin or rice wine
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp. scallions or chives thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. toasted sesame seeds (optional)

Instructions
 

Crispy Tofu

  • Drain the tofu, cut it into 1-inch cubes or 1/2-inch thick slices, and wrap it in a clean dishcloth for as long as possible (up to 12 hours), but at least 5 minutes.
  • Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the tofu in a single layer and brown it, turning occasionally, for 10 – 15 minutes until it is golden brown. Using a spatula, transfer the tofu to a plate and set it aside.

Korean Sesame-Soy Dipping Sauce

  • Whisk the ingredients together. Serve with crispy tofu.
