  • In a sauce pan over medium heat, put all sauce ingredients into the pan. Whisk sauce together until well blended, smooth and warm. Set aside.
  • Using your EZ Tofu Press, press the tofu for 15 minutes.
  • Cut tofu into long skinny planks (as shown in pictures)
  • Marinate tofu planks in 1/2 the sweet and sour sauce mixture for 1 hour.

Broiler Method

  • Place planks on a lipped baking sheet. Broil for 10 minutes, fiipping sides after 5 minutes.

Skillet Method

  • If you choose to NOT broil your tofu but use your skillet, you will place tofu along with marinade in the skillet over medium heat.  As the tofu cooks, the sauce will thicken.
  • Cook tofu about 5 minutes and add in remaining sauce.  Cook until sauce is thick, about another 5 minutes. *I like to leave 1-2 T left of sauce to garnish with.
  • Garnish with diced green onions and sesame seeds, if desired. Top with additional sauce if needed.
