Meatless Monday–Pan-Seared Pressed Tofu with Soy Sauce

Tofu has been one of my favs as far as meatless meat haha. This recipe comes from a recipe book called, “Oh She Glows” and is a winner!! It really does taste so good. Trust me. You’ll be glad you tried it :).  AND it’s soooo fast to cook after you have pressed it. 


Remove the extra-firm tofu from package and rinse with cold water. Place on clean towel. 


Fold towel over tofu and place some heavy books on top. By doing this, you are pressing the liquid out of the tofu to make it be a more meaty tofu. Leave the books on the tofu for at least 30 min to 1 hour. I pressed mine for about 4 hours and it was great. 



Cut tofu into squares and sprinkle on garlic powder, kosher salt, and pepper to both sides. 


Place 1 T. of coconut oil in a heavy pan on medium-high heat and let oil get nice and hot.  Place tofu squares in hot pan and drizzle soy sauce over all of tofu–not a lot but just a drizzle. Cook for approximately 3 minutes or until nice and brown. 


Turn over and cook other side for another 3 min.  And that’s it!! Serve with brown rice and roasted broccoli. Delish!
