Tofu in a sesame coat is shown in this recipe. The tofu is a popular ingredient and very suitable for vegetarian and vegan dishes. Tofu is a tasty meat substitute and offers about 8% protein. I personally like smoked tofu the most. The taste is much more exciting than the normal tofu and it brings the smoke aroma without smoking and effort on the plate. Tofu can be marinated in soy sauce or breaded in sesame, as I do in this recipe, before it is prepared. You can jump directly to the recipe tofu  in sesam coat. I wish you good luck and good appetite!

1. Tofu with Sesame, that’s the Sesame I use!

Simply put, there are sesame seeds in light and dark. I like to use both sorts very much and always have some of them in my house. The two types of sesame are stored in two different glasses and go well with rice or homemade bread. The sesame is also ideal for gluten-free breading.

Breading with sesame seeds brings a colourful composition to the plate.

2. Sesame Coat and Sesame Crust: How to Bread with Sesame Seed

The three sesame polishing methods presented below apply not only to tofu but also to vegetables, fish and meat. There are three ways of ensuring that the sesame remains stuck to the food to be cooked:

First: You bread with flour, egg and then sesame seeds. Explanation: The flour makes the egg stick to the food to be cooked, the sesame seeds stick accordingly well.

Second: You just press the sesame seeds firmly onto the food. Explanation: Certainly the simplest method, use a coated pan and a little oil for frying.

Thirdly and this is my favourite variation: You dip the food first into a freshly mixed starch water and then into sesame seeds. Explanation: The starch gelatinizes sesame seeds and the food to be cooked and this results in the popular sesame crust or sesame coat during frying.

All methods work, but: method one is nothing for the vegan kitchen, with the second method you always lose more sesame when frying, method three promises a great sesame crust, in addition, the preparation remains vegan, so it is my winning method.

3. My great Vegetable Salad with Tofu

Although this is an Asian dish, I did not use coriander this time. Not everyone likes bugweed, so today there is a decoration and taste variant with fried parsley. The vegetable salad is prepared from soya bean sprouts, paprika, celery, courgettes and herbs. So that the salad gains colour and additionally gets some sweetness there are the popular Superfood Goji berries, which are already available in my spice drawer. The vegetables are briefly fried in a wok so that they are firm to the bite and tasty on the plate. The spicy salad marinade with rice vinegar gives the preparation exactly the right touch.
