200 firm tofu – drained well & cut into triangular shapes

Sauce: 1 tablespoon vegan oyster sauce (or stir fry sauce), 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 11/2 teaspoon dark soy sauce
1. Pan fry tofu triangles in a heated non-stick pan with 1 teaspoon oil until golden brown on each side. Season with salt and set aside.
