1 package super firm tofu cut into 1/2 inch cubes (can get it at Trader Joe’s and most health food stores)*
1/2 T Sesame Oil
3/4 C Teriyaki Sauce
Mix Sesame Oil and Teriyaki Sauce in a bowl, whisking together
Spray Large Frying Pan (or wok) with cooking spray
Pan Fry Tofu over medium heat until it is cooked and brown on all sides (takes about 20 minutes)
Add Sauce mixture to the pan and saute about 5 minutes- until the sauce is bubbling and becomes thickened
Cool the Tofu Bites in the pan or in a container without the top
Sprinkle with Sesame Seeds, Chill Overnight and serve cold
*If you can find the super firm tofu that is packed in plastic, you only need to drain it for a few minutes prior to cooking. If you purchase more standard tofu, I recommend using the “extra-firm” variety. You should make sure to cut it into chunks and then press it between cheesecloth or paper towels for at least an hour prior to cooking.
