  • 1 block of firm tofu, cubed

  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, rice vinegar, minced garlic, and grated ginger to create the marinade.
  3. Place the tofu cubes in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them. Let it marinate for at least 15 minutes.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the marinated tofu cubes and stir-fry for 5-7 minutes or until they turn golden brown and crispy.
  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.
