Tofu w/Seasoning Sauce - (두부 무침)
Start off by purchasing firm tofu.
I start off by cutting it into thirds, then cutting it into 1/4 inch slices.
Lightly oil (I use regular Olive Oil) a pan and fry all the tofus until golden brown. Some people will sprinkle salt at this point, but I'm sure I've mentioned before but I try to avoid salt and MSG whenever possible...
While the tofu is frying, get your seasonings in order. I LOVE these bottles that they sell at Cost Plus World Market. It makes cooking such a breeze! I used to keep my gook ganjang in one of them too, but I realized that gook ganjang tends to get bad quickly (I would see mold floating around), so now I keep my gook ganjang in the fridge....problem solved.
Mix together: 4 tb gook ganjang, 3 tb soy sauce, 1/2 tb minced garlic, 1 tb sesame oil, 1 tb sesame seeds, 2 handfuls of green onions (or more), 2 tb red pepper powder.
Arrange the tofu in tupperware (or a plate).
And distribute the mixture evenly on top.
You can start another layer and continue....
I plated some for the MR's breakfast this morning. It's a light and healthy breakfast side dish~~ You can store the rest in the fridge for 2-3 days. Enjoy!
