- 1 1/2 – 2 cups diced tofu (firm or extra firm)
- 1/4 cup sliced onions
- 2-3 tsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp sugar, brown sugar, or 1 Tbsp honey (Optional)
- 1-2 Tbs oil
- In a small or medium frying pan, heat oil on medium heat.
- As oil is heating, add onions.
- As onions begin to cook, add tofu. Stir frequently.
- Add soy sauce, pour slowly over all the tofu.
- The tofu should be brown (not golden brown, but the color of the soy sauce). If some of the tofu is still white, and you have stirred thoroughly, add another dash or two of soy sauce.
- Cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
- Add sugar (if using). Try to evenly distribute it on the tofu. Stir well.
- In about 5-10 minutes, the onions should be tender. If not, continue cooking. The onions should be tender and the tofu should brown darker and crisp a little on the edges. All the soy sauce should be absorbed when the tofu is finished cooking.
This should make around 1 1/2 -2 cups of tofu.
This will go nicely with breakfast, or on top of rice, ramen, or with other Asian dishes.
