  • Slice the tofu.</br>
  • Heat up a cast-iron skillet on low-medium heat, once hot add a tablespoon of oil. Add the tofu slices. Cook on each side for 6 minutes. You will need to do this in two batches, however you won't need additional oil. If your pan is big enough, you can do this in one batch.</br>

  • After a minute, scramble the eggs into the sweet potato for 30 seconds. Don't worry about sticking, it will all be okay.</br>
  • Now add the sauce. All of it.</br>
  • Stir, scrape the bottom of the pan, and allow this mixture to cook down for about 2 minutes.</br>

Notes

* for vegetarians - use soy sauce, or any other vegetarian sauce instead. You can also make a Vegan Fish Sauce (google). Note, this is going to alter the taste of the sauce.
** for vegans - you can omit the eggs.
