Step by Step

  • Cook brown rice according to the package directions. 

  • drain tofu and wrap in a clean dishtowel. Gently press the tofu to remove the excess liquid. Cut the tofu into equal one-bite-sized cubes.

  • In a bowl, combine tamari, rice vinegar, maple syrup, miso paste, and grated ginger. Set aside. 

  • Add olive oil to the skillet and bring it to medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, carefully add tofu cubes. Do this carefully as oil can spit as tofu cooks. Cook changing sides until browned and crispy. Use a chopstick or spatula to turn.

  • Bring back the skillet o medium heat and add the sauce from step.

  • Spoon the sauce over the tofu to absorb. Let simmer until sauce has thickened and caramelized, for about 5 min. 

  • Serve the tofu with cooked brown rice and sliced cucumber on the side.
