I found this recipe on, where else, Pinterest. It sounded so simple but scared me a bit; the simmering preparation of the tofu, that is. Brought to mind the first time I had tofu: cold on a bed of lettuce, uncooked and unseasoned. It was not something I liked and that tasting set me and tofu apart for a bit. Thank goodness someone insisted I try some grilled at a barbecue or I might still be avoiding it.
I have to tell you, this is now one of my favorites! So easy, so warm, I can easily see myself going back to this especially if I have a cold or just need some comfort food. I did not have any sesame seeds or oil on hand so I left them out and subbed in olive oil. I can only imagine it getting better with the sesame flavors. I used some of my homegrown garlic too! Served it up with a mixed green salad but could also see this being delicious on a bed of rice, over some noodles or even turned into a soup. Can’t wait to keep exploring with this one!
