  • Summary

    This gently simmered tofu topped with a stir-together sauce is a common banchan. It would also make a great vegetarian main course served with rice. The sauce—speckled with chopped garlic, scallion, sesame seeds, and Korean hot red-pepper flakes—couldn't be simpler or more satisfying. You will want to eat it on everything.

    Ingredients

    • 1 (14-to 18-ounces) package soft tofu (not silken)
    • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
    • 1/4 cup chopped scallion
    • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted and crushed with side of a heavy knife
    • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoon Asian sesame oil
    • 1 teaspoon coarse Korean hot red-pepper flakes
    • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
