Honey Sesame Tofu is a healthy and low-fat tofu that is a yummy side dish and I have made it twice already.  It is an amazingly fast way to cook the tofu especially if you have the marinated tofu in the fridge.

Like I said yesterday in Blogging Marathon this week I am highlighting Pick one Protein Rich Ingredient and my star of the event is “Tofu” also known as bean curd.

I made this for the first time from here and I did not read the intro and hence did not know about having to drain the tofu.  It was the second time I followed the instructions but I marinated the tofu as I liked the taste when they were marinated. You may avoid it but to my Indian palate, it was necessary.

Let us then zoom in directly to the recipe I followed.

    I never made tofu from scratch. Since it available almost all the stores never needed to. It is good to know it is prepared almost similar to paneer. Honey sesame tofu looks yummy.

    Hot and sweet tofu looks so delicious. Adding whole sesame seed provides nice crunchy to the soft tofu. Looks so good, Archana.
