Sizzling Ginger-Lemongrass Tofu

  • FAST
  1. 1 stalk of fresh lemongrass, tender inner bulb only, minced
  2. One 1/2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  3. 1 tablespoon minced cilantro
  4. 2 teaspoons minced mint leaves
  5. 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
  6. 1 scallion, minced
  7. 1 garlic clove, minced
  8. Pinch of crushed red pepper
  9. 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
  10. 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  11. 2 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
  12. One 14-ounce package firm tofu at room temperature-drained, halved lengthwise and sliced crosswise 1/2 inch thick
  1. In a small, heatproof bowl, combine the lemongrass with the ginger, cilantro, mint, sesame seeds, scallion, garlic, crushed red pepper, soy sauce and rice vinegar.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat the oil over high heat until almost smoking, about 2 minutes. Meanwhile, arrange the tofu slices on a plate. When the oil is hot, pour it over the lemongrass mixture; it will sizzle. Immediately spoon the hot ginger-lemongrass sauce over the tofu and serve.
