Recipe

I never really thought about cooking tofu in the slow cooker since I assumed it might just become a mushy mess.  However doing some research, it turns out that you can make some pretty delicious tofu in the slow cooker.  I find that pressing the tofu first helps the tofu to stay firm even with 4 hours of cooking.  This recipe is inspired by an Asian style sesame barbecue sauce and uses sesame oil, brown sugar, Hoisin sauce, ginger, and orange juice to create a slightly sweet sauce.  It's delicious with the tofu and makes a special vegetarian or vegan meal.
