Ginger Basil Tofu

This recipe combines the flavours found in Thai and Vietnamese cooking such as basil, ginger and sesame. Prepare in advance so that the tofu can absorb the flavours. Tip: If you don’t like the flavour of tofu in its natural form, thinly slice it and marinate in your favourite flavours before cooking ;)

  • 1 package medium firm tofu
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 scallion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 inch knob ginger, chopped

Place ingredients in a bowl and marinate for at least one hour, making sure that the tofu is well covered with the mixture. Heat a drop of oil in a frying pan and lightly fry each side of tofu until golden-brown (for approximately 5-10 minutes). Serve with bean sprouts or other fresh vegetables of your choice!

    Sounds tasty! Just curious, what is the 100 mile diet? Vote #2!

      Thanks Carolyn! It means to only eat locally grown items within 100 miles from where you live. Something that I couldn't do in Canada because the growing season is so short.

        Well some people manage to do the one-hundred mile diet in southern climes of Canada, but their diets are more limited than if they lived in warmer climates. It involves storing a lot of root vegetables, preserving foods, and probably cheating once in a while! ;)
