This is a super easy and delicious meal that’s ready in no time. It’s also great for summer months or those days when you want something easy yet delicious to make. You only need a handful ingredients to make it and the steps are minimal. This can be a no-cook recipe as well, if you just use cold tofu. I like to slice my tofu and then pan sear. The flavours in this recipe are a wonderful balance of spicy, umami, garlicky from the sauce against the cool blandness of tofu. You can serve it with a side of rice, or greens, or even cold noodles!
