400gramsextra firm tofudiced (make sure it’s extra firm not soft or medium firm)
Optional: sesame seeds for garnish
Strain the liquid of your extra firm tofu and pat it very dry with a paper towel. Then dice it into cubes.
In a small bowl, whisk together your sauce ingredients.
In a large non stick pan set over medium heat, add avocado oil. Next add your diced tofu. Pan fry on all sides until crispy and golden. This will take about 10-15 minutes to ensure all sides are crispy.
Next pour in your sauce and let it reduce with the tofu in the pan. You may need to increase the heat. Let the sauce simmer until it’s thick, glossy and not runny. Serve hot and enjoy!
