Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Serves/Yield: about 36 bites
2 tbsp (30 mL) sesame seeds
In a small dry skillet, toast sesame seeds, shaking pan over medium heat for about 3 minutes or until light golden. Remove to shallow bowl and let cool.
Cut tofu into about 36 1-inch (2.5-cm) cubes and pat dry.
In a nonstick skillet, heat sesame oil over medium high heat and add cubed tofu. Cook tofu, shaking pan often for about 8 minutes or until golden brown.
In a small bowl, whisk together tamari and miso paste. Add to skillet and toss until tofu is coated and well glazed. Remove from heat.
Pierce each cube with a toothpick and roll bottom or sides into sesame seeds. Place on serving platter or board to enjoy!
Tip: Alternately, you can toss the cubes with the sesame seeds in the pan, then serve them up with toothpicks on the side.
Tip: These little bites would be a perfect addition as a salad topper or croutons.
