Garlicky and sticky, this is a delicious way of eating tofu. Frying it in a hot pan without moving it too much will ensure you get the best crispy result for this vegetarian dish. Toss in simple greens and serve on a bed of brown rice, it’s that easy. Try freezing the tofu before cooking and your result will be even better — the texture changes and tastes delicious.

For the stir-fry
|2 tsp||Sesame oil|
|250 g||Firm tofu, sliced|
