Fried Sesame Tofu

I ate these as a side dish with something like homemade lo mien being the entree.


  • 1 12-16 oz package of firm or extra firm tofu
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 3 Tbsp oil
  • 2 tsp rubbed sage
  • 2 pinches of rosemary leaves
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 shakes of garlic powder

To Make:

  1. Pour oil into a large frying pan and heat on medium heat.
  2.  Drain all the liquid (as much as possible) out of the tofu.
  3. Slice tofu into about 7-10 slices.
  4. Carefully place tofu in the pan as the oil begins to heat. It might splatter, so you might want to guard your eyes and also wear long sleeves.
  5. Sprinkle 1/2 of the tablespoon of sesame seeds on top of the tofu.
  6. Sprinkle 1 tsp, 1 pinch of rosemary, 1/2 the pinch of salt, and 1 shake of garlic powder over the tofu.
  7.  Flip the tofu, carefully, after it becomes brown on the bottom.
  8. Repeat steps 5 and 6.
  9. Wait for tofu to brown and crisp on the bottom (may take about five minutes), and then flip again.
  10. When the tofu has turned a nice shade of golden brown, with a slight crispiness on both sides, remove it from the heat and from the extra oil that is in the pan. Let it cool for a few minutes before eating. It can keep in the fridge for a few days.
