The simplest of dinners but PACKED with flavour. Tried something a little different with my tofu yesterday and it’s a win so wanted to share. I generally don’t coat my tofu in anything but I wanted the sauce to slightly thicken once it hit the tofu. It worked like a dream.

1 block tofu cut in rectangles
2 tsp arrowroot starch
3 tbsp tamari
1 big tbsp hoisin
1 tsp maple syrup
1 tsp sriracha
1 tsp sesame oil
Pinch chili flakes
>Press tofu for one hour and pat dry. Cut into desired shapes (love the little rectangles here👆🏼) and sprinkle arrowroot over them. Toss to coat evenly. Whisk sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a nonstick pan (I find that’s key so you aren’t fighting with sticking tofu). Place tofu gently into pan browning on each side. Pour sauce into pan. Allow sauce to bubble away turning tofu to coat. Remove from heat. Serve with, cooked rice, garlicky mushrooms, sliced cucumber(drizzled with sesame oil👌🏼), green onion and sesame seeds. Pour any excess sauce over rice.
