Sesame Crusted Tofu Bowl

This dish is easy to whip together and has a lot of potential substitutes to change it up. I often make extra servings of the broccoli rice since it stores well, and will enjoy it with other types of protein. It’s great with baked salmon, grilled prawns, or even on its own. Hope you enjoy!

  • 1 pack tofu (350 g), sliced
  • 4 tbsp hoisin
