Spicy Sesame Dipping Sauce:


Cut tofu into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes. Let stand on plate for 30 minutes; discard liquid. In skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; working in batches, cook tofu, turning often, until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to paper towel–lined plate to drain. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Bring to room temperature before serving.)

Spicy Sesame Dipping Sauce: Meanwhile, in bowl, mix together soy sauce, green onion, vinegar, garlic, sesame seeds, sesame oil, hot pepper flakes and sugar. Serve with tofu.

Makes about 30 pieces.
