  • ย 1 package of @housefoods tofu (18 ounces: 510 grams)
  • ย 3 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced @gourmetgarden
  • ยฝ cup minced onion
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • One head of @peteslivinggreens Butter Lettuce

For the sauce, mix in a small bowl:

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce or amino acids
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper flakes / Gochujang Paste is what we use
  • ยฝ cup water

1. Rinse tofu in cold running water and dry it with cotton or paper towel. Cut it into ยผ inch thick bite sizeย pieces.
2. Add the cooking oil to a non-stick pan and heat it up over high heat.
3. Gently set the tofu onto the pan and cook for 7 to 8 minutes. Rotate the pan to cook the tofu evenly.ย Whenย the bottoms get a little crunchy, flip them over one by one with a spatula. Let cook another 7 to 8ย minutes until both sides of each tofu piece are a little crispy and golden brown.

4. Transfer the tofu to a plate. Keep the leftover oil.
5. Heat up a small pan over medium high heat and add the leftover oil.
6. Add chopped onion, garlic, and green onion (less 1 tablespoon, to be used for a garnish later). Stir with aย wooden spoon for a few minutes until the onion gets a little crispy.

7. Add the sauce and keep stirring until it reduces a bit and thickens.

8. Add tofu and braise for a minute until the tofu absorbs some of the flavor of the sauce. Add some sesameย oil and stir.

9. Serve with lettuce and make tacos!
