  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 2 green onions, chopped

Instructions

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, rice vinegar, minced garlic, and grated ginger to create the marinade.

  5. Add the sliced red bell pepper and continue to stir-fry for an additional 2-3 minutes until the pepper softens slightly.
  6. Sprinkle sesame seeds and chopped green onions over the tofu and stir-fry for another minute.
  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Serve your Stir-Fried Sesame Tofu hot, garnished with extra sesame seeds and green onions if desired.
