How to make Pan-Fried Tofu with Hot Truffle Sauce (Easy Recipe)


Pan-Fried Tofu with Hot Truffle Sauce

Looking for a vegan entree, a quick and easy snack or a protein to add to other dishes (like the soba noodle dish above)? This is a spicy, flavorful tofu recipe you’ll reach for again and again, any time you’re in the mood for tofu.



  1. Thoroughly dry the cut tofu cubes using paper towels or lint-free cooking linens. Season lightly with salt and pepper (don’t overdo it here, the truffle sauce will do most of the heavy lifting where flavor is concerned).
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive and sesame oil over medium-high heat.
  3. Cook tofu until golden brown, turning to ensure even color on all sides. Usually 2-4 minutes each side. Just use caution and check frequently to make sure you don’t burn the tofu.
  4. Remove cubes once they’re done and place on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb extra oil.
  5. Once all of the tofu is done and has rested for up to five minutes, transfer to a serving bowl, add the truffle sauce, and gently stir using a serving spoon to coat the tofu in hot truffle sauce.
  6. Try not to eat it all at once!
