Recipe Ingredients for Tofu and Scallions

450 package Medium Firm
8 green onions
3 tbsp peanut oil
3 tbsp chicken broth
1 1/4 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp garlic
2 tsp finely grated ginger

Recipe Directions for Tofu and Scallions

  1. Remove tofu from package and drain in a colander in the sink for a few minutes. Then cut tofu into slices about 3/4 - 1 inch thick. Put each slice between two paper towels and press down on it so most of the liquid is absorbed into the towel, then cut tofu into square cubes.

  2. Put wok or heavy frying pan on stove and preheat pan until it feels hot when you hold your hand over it. Add oil and heat until shimmering. Then add garlic and ginger, cook about 10 seconds, and quickly add tofu cubes and white pieces of green onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tofu is quite browned. (Mark Bittman says a couple of minutes, but I cooked it about 7 minutes to get the tofu as brown as you see in the photo.)

  3. When tofu is well browned, add the stock and cook, stirring, until it is mostly evaporated. Add the green parts of green onions and cook about 30 seconds. Add soy sauce and stir to distribute. Turn off heat, put tofu and onions on a serving plate and sprinkle with black sesame seeds. (The sesame seeds will be more flavorful if you toast them for 1-2 minutes in a dry pan, but it's not essential.) Serve hot.
