- 1/4 cup vegetable broth
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tbsp agave syrup
- 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger
- 1/2 tsp cornstarch
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 12 oz extra-firm tofu, sliced
- 1 tbsp coarsely ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup roughly chopped green onions
In a small bowl, whisk together the vegetable broth, soy sauce, garlic, agave, ginger, and cornstarch. Set it aside.
In a large skillet, heat the sesame oil over medium-high heat and cook the tofu until it is brown on all sides, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the soy sauce mixture and continue to cook until the sauce thickens, 1 to 2 minutes. Season the tofu with the black pepper.
Serve immediately topped with more black pepper or store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
