Pan Seared Balsamic Tofu

Tofu served with some rice with mini bell peppers and Brussels sprouts

Not much of a write-up on this one. It was one of our “quick whip-ups” for dinner, which turned out nicely.

  1. I haven’t had seared tofu for a while. We normally deep fry them and then dip them in some “Maggi” sauce. It’s our favourite snack. Fast and easy, like your dinner meal =)
