Recipe Ingredients for Spicy Asian Tofu

16 ounce extra-firm tofu, from a drained and patted dry
7 ounces kimchi, finely chopped
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
2 tablespoons mirin
2 scallions, white and light green parts only, finely chopped

Recipe Directions for Spicy Asian Tofu

  1. Place the tofu between 2 plates. Weight the top plate with a heavy can and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the chopped kimchi with the soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of the rice vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon of the sesame oil. Drain the tofu and pat dry. Cut the tofu into 1/4-inch-thick slices and then cut each slice into 2 triangles. Arrange the tofu triangles on a platter and spoon the kimchi dressing on top. Refrigerate the dressed tofu for 5 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, toss the cucumbers with the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons of vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil and the mirin. Season with salt. Scatter the scallions over the tofu and serve right away, passing the cucumber salad on the side.

  4. MAKE AHEAD The recipe can be prepared through Step 2 and refrigerated for up to 6 hours.
