Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 tablespoons tamari
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon fresh ginger peeled and minced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 14-ounce packages extra-firm tofu, pressed, cut into 1-inch cubes, and patted dry

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the almond butter, tamari, water, ginger, sesame oil, and garlic until the consistency is smooth. Set aside.
  • Into a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, add the vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, add the cubed tofu in an even layer. Cook, turning over occasionally, for 10 minutes or until lightly crisp. Remove from heat.
  • Pour the almond butter sauce over the tofu, stirring gently to coat. Serve hot.
