Step 1

- Start cooking your rice
- Tofu - cut tofu into desired size. Remove excess water by pressing tofu 'steaks' between a couple paper towels.
- Pour your sesame seeds on a plate and cover your tofu with sesame seeds.
- Sear in a hot pan with sesame oil and garlic.

Step 2

Place over rice and top with desired toppings. I chose raw chopped ginger, grated carrots, green onions, bonito flakes, soy sauce, and korean chili paste.


I served this with a simple cucumber salad for a light but filling lunch.
