2 14 oz packages of firm tofu
2 large carrots peeled & julienne
1 English cucumber peeled and cut into rounds
2 avocado sliced thin
2 tbsp canola oil
1 tbsp miso paste
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
Begin by carefully preparing your vegetables. Neatly set them aside in the refrigerator when you have finished your cuts.
Remove the tofu from the packages and pat it dry. Cut it into 16 equal cubes (4 per serving) and season to your liking.
Heat a non-stick frying pan over high heat, add the canola oil and wait about 30 to 45 seconds until the oil is nice and hot. Sear each piece of tofu for about one minute on each side. When you have achieved a nice sear on the tofu turn off the heat and mix together the Miso, soy sauce, and rice wine. Toss the tofu in this resulting sauce. Plate with a generous serving of each vegetable and enjoy.
