Easy to prepare for lunch packs when going to school or work, tofu is a good source of high quality plant protein. Even better, it’s zero cholesterol! You can add it to salads, in a sandwich, or white rice and veggies.
Makes 2 1/4 cups or 4 to 6 servings
Two 300-gram blocks of firm tofu, rinsed and drained
2 tbsp sesame oil or other vegetable oil
2 tbsp soy sauce or Bragg’s liquid aminos
1 tsp muscovado or coconut sugar, optional
