  • One 14 ounce (396g) package firm tofu, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed or canola oil (or other high flashpoint oil)

How to make this recipe

  1. Pat the tofu dry with paper towels to remove excess water. Cut into 1-inch slices.

  2. Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add the oil and after the oil is hot, carefully add the tofu into a single layer (hot oil may splatter). Sear each side for 1-2 minutes, or until at least 2-3 sides are golden and crisped.

  3. Drain on paper towels.
