on the matter of Tofu

No, no one is talking about it,
but it was on sale a shoprite and i went for it.
I do not hide tofu as some meat substitute,
it is what it is, but i do add flavor to it.
So tonight was meatless night.
I do this...because...

Fried Tofu
1 package Extra firm tofu, cut into quarter inch slabs
sesame seed oil, to cover the frying pan
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
1/2 of a long red ripe Italian hot pepper, diced
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
1 teaspoon salt, kosher

heat the oil gently and add the ginger and peppers and mix
add sesame seeds and when they just begin to turn golden,
 remove the peppers (and many of the seeds and some of the ginger will also be removed) and save.
add the tofu and gently salt.
Gently flip after a couple of minutes and turn up the heat to medium and salt again.
Flip after 5 minutes and remove after another 2 minutes (the Tofu may have a bit of color to it.
Serve each piece of tofu with the pepper and ginger over it.
