SIMPLE TOFU SALAD W/SCALLIONS, SOY, SESAME SEEDS
This one's easy, nothing too fancy.
Cut up some tofu. For a single serving, I used a quarter block. Heat a cast-iron skillet or non-stick pan on medium heat, add your fat of choice [canola, olive oil, lard], and add the tofu. Let it brown for around 10-15 minutes on each side.
Meanwhile, grab a tablespoon of soy sauce and 1.5 tablespoons water. Mix in a bowl. Thinly slice the green part of a scallion; once you get down to the firmer, white portion, cut it down the middle in both dimensions and separate. Throw these longer pieces in the soy sauce. Cover and let sit at room temp.
Grab some sesame seeds and shichimi togarashi, a Japanese spice blend. When the tofu's done, place it in your bowl with soy sauce and green onions. Top with sesame seeds, the remaining green portion of the scallions, and the shichimi. Enjoy.
