I know. I know. You’re all here she is with the tofu again. Telling me I’ll love it. Telling me to just try it. You’re right I am. Hear me out though. This is The Best Super Crispy Sesame Tofu. It’s crispy, sticky, sweet and salty and trust me it’s also addicting. You’ll be a tofu believer in no time. The secret to The Best Super Crispy Sesame Tofu is in the easy cooking method and the delicious sauce. I mean… look at this… how can you not even be the least bit intrigued?
The recipe is basically the same as the tofu I use in Crispy Tofu Super Food Fried Rice. The added twist is baking it in the oven for 20 minutes. The result is perfectly firm crispy tofu that doesn’t require a ton of oil or fussing. It’s delicious when served with my Hibachi Style Teriyaki Vegetables and Brown Rice.
When I discuss my love of tofu, people often tell me they don’t do “fake meat.” Tofu is a food that is completely in it’s own right. So, don’t go into it believing you need it to taste like meat. Tofu is like chicken in that it will take on the flavor of whatever you put on it. I know people say they just “love chicken.” Try poaching a plain chicken breast and not seasoning it. Report back and tell me how flavorful it is. While tofu doesn’t taste like chicken, it does have that blank canvas quality.
I am definitely not trying to sell you on a Vegan life style. That’s not how I live. However, I will tell you that we cut meat from our diet a few nights a week and the dishes we’ve discovered because of that are delicious. The earth , your health and your wallet will thank you.
So… come on give The Best Crispy Sesame Tofu a try and let me know how it went. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
