Get Cooking:
1) Drain and press tofu to get rid of excess water. Cut tofu into julienned strips.
2) Start with ½ c cornstarch spread on a plate and roll tofu until gently coated.
3) Coat large pan with olive oil and arrange coated tofu evenly. Cook until brown and then flip, approximately 5 minutes each side. We used tongs to make flipping easier.
