Ingredients

    14 ounces low-fat extra firm tofu
    1-2 scallions, thinly sliced
    3 tablespoons soy sauce
    2 garlic cloves (smashed with the back of a knife)
    1 teaspoon sesame oil
    1 inch fresh ginger, sliced
    salt, to taste
    pepper, to taste
    1 teaspoon fresh or dried lemongrass (optional)

Directions

1. In a 9×9-inch square baking dish, whisk all the ingredients (except for the tofu).
2. Drain the tofu and slice in half lengthwise; blot with a paper towel.
3. Preheat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and spray with non-stick spray.
4. Slide the tofu slices in the skillet and grill for about 4-5 minutes on each, flipping carefully with a large spatula. Brown it nicely to give it color and texture.
5. Slip the tofu slices into the marinade, turning with a spatula at least once.
6. While the tofu is sitting in the marinade, cut each slab 3 times lengthwise and widthwise with a sharp knife (so that you have 16 squares per slab). Toss carefully.
7. Let the tofu marinate for up to 30 minutes.
8. Remove the ginger slices and garlic. Serve warm, at room temperature or chilled.

  • SO EASY, which is what I love about it. I would make a few suggestions & only add 1 1/2-2 tbs of soy sauce & I would mince the garlic and ginger. Otherwise, it was delicious. - 3/4/11
