    1. 1
      Cut the tofu into 4 rectangular pieces and remove the excess moisture by placing heavy pans directly on top of the tofu. Let stand about 20 minutes.
    2. 2
      Heat both oils up in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Fry the tofu on all sides to seal.
    3. 3
      Place the tofu on a serving platter.
    4. 4
      In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the soy sauce, rice vinegar, ginger and water (or broth). Just before the mixture comes to a boil, whisk in the miso.
    5. 5
      Pour the sauce over the cooked tofu. Garnish with scallions, watercress or daikon sprouts, and the black sesame seeds.
    6. 6
      Can be served hot or at room temperature.

      YUUMMM yum! What a great supper tonight! Wonderful flavor! I did change this quite a bit (and am posting my own version), but since it was a jumping-off point with great basic ingredients I'm giving it mega stars. Thanks for posting!

      This made a pleasant lught sauce. My only niggle with it is that the sauce has the consistency of water and didn't really flavour my tofu at all. I served mine on a bed of noodles but agree brown rice would be better. I don't think it's one I would make again myself but I would add some cornstarch to thicken the sauce up next time.
