Ingredients
  • 1 cup carrots, cut into large chunks (from 1 large or 2 small)
  • 3 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 3 Tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce or tamari, divided
  • 1 (1½-2-inch) knob freshly peeled ginger
  • 1 Tbsp. neutral vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 (14-oz.) block extra-firm tofu, drained and pressed, and cut into 8 to 10 slices
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • Sesame seeds and sliced green onion for garnish (optional)
Instructions
  1. Cook carrots in a small saucepan of boiling water for 10 minutes; drain and transfer to a blender. Add rice vinegar, sesame oil, 1 Tbsp. of the soy sauce, ginger, and 2 Tbsp. water; blend until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Heat vegetable (or canola) oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add tofu; cook, undisturbed, 3 minutes, until golden brown. Flip and cook an additional 3 minutes.
  3. Combine remaining 2 Tbsp. soy sauce, honey, garlic, and 1 Tbsp. water in a small bowl; stir with a whisk. Pour mixture into pan with tofu; cook an additional 3 minutes, flipping tofu occasionally, until most of sauce has been absorbed and tofu is caramelized.
  4. To assemble, add a slick of carrot-ginger sauce to each of 4 plates. Top evenly with tofu slices and garnish with green onion and sesame seeds. Serve with vegetable and/or grain of choice.
