Tofu with Spicy Sauce

Once again a very simple, delicious, and healthy meal.  It is nice to not eat meat...sometimes and luckily I really do enjoy tofu.  Tofu is such a versatile food because it tastes like almost nothing and it soaks up a lot of flavor from whatever you are cooking it with, versatility is awesome.  Last night I didn't have a lot of time to cook and I LOVE Asian inspired recipes so I adapted this recipe from Week of Menus blog and it was as tasty as it looks.  So here is another recipe for all my lovely vegetarian friends, eat up!

Serves 2

The Ingredients
1 block firm tofu, cut in half length-wise and then into 1-inch thick pieces
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
2 tablespoons green onions, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh chives, finely chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic chili paste
2 teaspoons black sesame seeds

The Process
1.  In small bowl mix together soy sauce, sesame oil, green onions, chives, garlic chili paste, and black sesame seeds and set aside.  Note the longer the sauce sits the better it tastes.

2.  Turn stove to medium-high heat.  In large skillet arrange tofu chunks in one single layer and then put 1/2 cup water in the pan.

3.  Then place pan on stove and let steam for about 4 minutes.

4.  Take tofu out of pan and put on a plate, then pour the sauce over the top of the tofu.
