Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place tofu onto a plate and place another plate on top. Set a 3 to 5 pound weight on top. Press tofu for 20 to 30 minutes; drain and discard the accumulated liquid.

  • Cut tofu into 2x4-inch strips about 1/4-inch thick.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large skillet over medium-low heat. Cook tofu strips in the oil until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Stack tofu strips horizontally in a dish with sloping sides, like a teacup saucer.

  • Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the same skillet. Add green onions; cook and stir until fragrant, 10 to 20 seconds. Spoon green onions over tofu while they are still sizzling. Coat with soy sauce. Let sit until tofu soaks up flavors, 3 to 5 minutes.

Sometimes the best things don t have to be complicated! I followed the recipe exactly and served it with a veggie stir fry and rice. Everyone enjoyed their dinner including my two toddlers. I will definitely be keeping this in my arsenal. I used a cast iron skillet and timed 3 min per side. Read More
