  • 3 While buns are steaming, heat oven to 350°F. In 8-inch skillet, heat olive oil until it begins to shimmer. Add tofu (it should immediately start to sizzle). Cook 2 minutes on each side or until a thin, crispy crust forms. Place in baking dish.
  • 4 In small bowl, mix soy sauce, sesame seed, sesame oil, 2 green onions and the garlic. Pour over tofu. Bake 15 minutes.

Expert Tips

Instead of the tofu filling, these buns can be filled with grilled pork or chicken that has been marinated in a combination of hoisin sauce and soy sauce.

Bamboo steamers can be found in most grocery stores for under $10.
