Glazed Tofu #vegan

I'm the only one in my family who likes tofu, so I don't get to have it very often. ~weeps~

I indulged myself a couple of weeks ago, which means, since I've slept since then, I don't remember exactly what this glaze was made of.

From the color, I'd say it was Hoisin sauce with a little soy sauce, maybe some minced ginger and onion? I do remember I sliced it and pressed liquid out of it. Then I heated my beloved iron skillet with enough sesame oil to cover the bottom. I arranged the tofu in there, not crowded, and brushed the tops with the glaze. The heat? Probably just below medium. It probably took about 7-10 minutes to brown on the bottom. Then I flipped the pieces and glazed the browned side, continuing to cook for another 7-10 minutes.

When the tofu was done, I took it out, put some more oil in (just a blip), and cooked the leftover rice with water chestnuts and cashews.

I was in heaven! Charlie ate it, but he wasn't thrilled.

I'm posting todayat my own blog about the Okonomiyaki  I made the other day which did get a good review.
