  • 1 tub extra-firm tofu 16 oz
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper optional
  • 2 green onions minced
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • garnish with toasted sesame seeds if desired


  • Cut the tofu into slices 1/2" thick. Blot the slices on a few layers of clean paper towels. Cut each slice in half again so that the slices are now 1/4" thick. Cut the 1/4" slices on the diagonal to make triangles.
  • In a shallow bowl mix everything else together except the green onions, vegetable oil and sesame seeds.
  • Heat a nonstick skillet with a drizzle of vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add tofu triangles in a single layer and pour the marinade over. Flip tofu pieces to coat and continue to flip as needed until both sides are a nice golden brown.
  • Transfer the cooked triangles to a plate. Garnish with the minced green onions and sesame seeds. Serve hot.
  • Leftovers (if you have them) can be refrigerated and warmed gently in a frying pan or the microwave.
