Sesame Crusted Tofu
Here the tofu slices are browned before being dredged in bread crumbs and sesame seeds and then browned again, forming a nice toasty crust. Serve with soy sauce and a quick stir-fry of your favorite vegetables. If you can't find black sesame seed, just sub in regular sesame seeds.
