Warm Tofu With Garlic Sauce and Sesame
1 400g package of firm tofu
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup chopped spring onions
2 teaspoons sesame seeds, and coarsely ground with a mortar and pestle
3 tablespoons soy sauce (or tamari for gluten free)
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 tsp crushed red-pepper flakes (or more to taste)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Put the tofu in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a simmer then keep covered on a low heat while you make the sauce.
Mash the garlic in a mortar and pestle (or with the side of a knife) with a pinch of salt. Stir the mashed garlic together with remaining ingredients.
Lift the tofu with a spatula or slotted spoon out of the water and transfer to a shallow bowl. Spoon the sauce all over the tofu and serve.
