Looking for a quick, cool, protein-rich lunch? This tofu - almond bowl is inspired by Korean bee-bim-bop without the rice.
Simply start with half a block of tofu, dress it with a 1/2 a teaspoon sesame oil, a tablespoon of seasoned panko crumbs, a dozen cracked almonds, a tablespoon of black sesame seeds, and a chopped scallion. Spice it up from time to time with sliced French radishes, shredded Japanese daikon, carrots or hot sesame oil.
The sesame seeds and oil really give it an amazing aroma and flavor - but they also increase the cholesterol-free fat. Another approach might be to make some sesame seed infused olive oil!
