Crispy Ginger Sesame Tofu Served with Basil and Brown Rice

This is hands down my FAVOURITE way to eat tofu from now on. 




Makes for 2-4 servings.

Ingredients:

  • 450g firm tofu

For the sauce:

  • 1 clove garlic finely chopped  

  • ½ lemon squeezed 

  • Pinch of ground ginger 

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce (or tamari)

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

  • 1 tbsp hot water

+ Brown rice and basil to serve.

Method: 

  1. Crumble plain tofu on a baking tray, place in oven and bake until brown.

  2. Remove tofu from the oven, cover with sauce and let marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight - Alternatively, you can skip this and eat it straight away!

  3. Serve with brown rice, basil leaves + a bit of chilli (if you’re game).
