I have a secret. I hate tofu. No, wait, I like tofu…I hate cooking it. When I pan fry tofu it tends to stick to the bottom of the pan and fall apart. Try as I might, it never seems to retain it’s original shape. Then, cruelly, the tofu plays a trick on me. In all that flopping around, the sticking, and the falling apart in the pan, the end result tastes really good – especially in this recipe. So, the trick to cooking tofu is not to let it intimidate me. (And, make sure I get as much liquid out of it before it hits the pan.)
This plum sauce, created by VeganDad, would also be good on broccoli and some “chicken” seitan. Either way, served with some sticky sushi rice, this is pretty darn good.
