sesame-crusted tofu

Submitted by: LADYPHOENIX61

Introduction

I'm becoming a fan or tofu more and more and this is becoming a favorite "comfort food". There's an Asian food store in my neighborhood and I when shopping there, I walk for the exercise. Because their prices are so much lower than supermarkets, I save money! I get cardio, save money and a nutritious meal to boot! What could be better than that?!
