The Sauce:



  1. Prepare the ingredients: crumble one block of tofu after draining the liquid and wrapping it in a towel (see notes below for full details), slice the cabbage with a sharp knife, food processor or mandoline slicer and mix up the sauce (1 clove crushed garlic, 2 tablespoons tamari sauce, 2 tablespoons sesame oil, 1 teaspoon of fresh grated ginger).

How to prepare Tofu

  1. Several hours or the night before before preparing dinner, open the tofu container and drain the liquid 
  2. Wrap the tofu block in paper towels or a clean towel
  3. Place it on a plate and top the tofu with something heavy to help the towel soak up more moisture. I like to use a small cast iron pan but you can also use a heavy bowl. 
  4. When it’s time to prepare the recipe, unwrap the tofu, the towel should be wet and crumble it up with your fingers.

Add as many vegetables as you like to the cabbage mixture. Here are some suggestions:
