A quick fix for meat-and-potato meals or the simplest tofu burger ever.

1 lb. Tofu

2 tsp vegetable oil

2 Tbl tamari

dash of Tabasco

4 drops dark sesame oil

Fold a clean tea towel or paper towel and ‘sandwich’ tofu between layers. Place a plate or small cutting board on top and weight with a can or two. Allow tofu to press 10 minutes (or until other ingredients are ready).

Preheat broiler.

Stir together oil, tamari, Tabasco and sesame oil and set aside.

Artfully cut tofu 1/2 inch slices… squares, rectangles, or triangles. Place on broil-proof pan. (Glass baking pans don’t do well under broiler. Better to use metal.) Pour the marinade over the tofu and broil for about 5 minutes on each side, until bubbly, browned and crisp
