Tofu Simmered in Hoisin Sauce by Deborah Madison
15 mins (prep 10, cooking 5)

Entered for safe-keeping, asking my vegetarian friends to review this for me. From "This Can't Be Tofu!" by Deborah Madison. Because hoisin sauce is very sweet, dice the tofu very small and serve it as a sauce over rice, with stir-fried spinach, green beans or broccoli on the side. For interesting presentation, cut the tofu into triangles, brown them briefly in a little oil, and add them to the sauce. Per Ms. Madison, soft tofu packed in water has the best flavor and texture, both of which are more pronounced if tofu is not browned. If you enjoy the pure flavor of soft tofu, heat the sauce with the tofu in it until it is just warmed through; if it reduces too much, add more water or stock to thin it out. Serves 2 as a main course, or 4 as an accent sauce.
