  • 300 g silken tofu or sub with soft tofu




  • Carefully peel away a corner of the plastic seal on the silken tofu package. Hold the tofu in place and turn it upside down to drain the excess liquid over the sink. Place the tofu over a paper towel to soak up the liquid.
  • Next place a plate over top of the tofu package turning it over to transfer the tofu onto the plate.
  • In a small pot set over medium heat, add oil followed by white onion, green onion and garlic. Sauté for until onions are translucent, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Lower heat to low flame. Pour in the soy sauce, sugar and sesame oil and mix in with onions and garlic. Cook for 1 minute.
  • Pour the sauce over the silken tofu. Optional: garnish with sesame seeds and green onions. Enjoy!
