Instructions
  1. Cut the Tofu into thin strips and place on two sheets of kitchen roll (folded in half). Place another 2 sheets (in half again so like 1 thick sheet) on top of the strips, then place a flat chopping board on top of the strips.
  2. Place a heavy book (I use an old, thick recipe book) and place it on top of the flat chopping board. Leave for at least 15 minutes (I normally aim for half an hour), the longer the better.
  3. Nearing the end of these 15 minutes, preheat a small frying pan with the oil in.
  4. You can either leave the tofu in strips, or you can cut it into smaller blocks, I normally opt for the small blocks.
  5. Put the tofu into the frying pan and toss until the oil is evenly spread. Cook for 4 minutes, tossing mid-way, until a light golden brown.
  6. Add the tamari, beware it may get very steamy so you may be better turning the heat down. Toss together, cooking for a further 2 minutes.
  7. To serve, add to the main dish you have made and enjoy!
