Spicy Tofu Triangles

One of the first recipes I fell in love with was this one! I would make it for friends all the time and never met anyone who didn't love it. One time I had a few people over and my rat at the time, Ernal, who lived free in my apartment, quickly jumped on a friend's plate and stole a tofu triangle. Watching her run with a piece of tofu a third her size was hilarious. She came back for more, but we were smarter this time. We wanted the tofu for ourselves!

1 lb Tofu
3 Cloves Garlic, minced
2 Tb Ginger, grated
1-2 Tb Raw Sugar
1/3 cup Tamari
1 Tb Olive Oil
Chili Paste to taste

Slice tofu into 1/4-inch slabs and again diagonally. In a non-stick pan, fry tofu in oil on medium heat until golden brown on both sides. Combine ginger, garlic, chili paste and sugar in the tamari and stir well. Pour over golden tofu making sure all pieces are covered. Cook until liquid is absorbed by tofu. Serve with brown rice and steamed broccoli.
