1 (14-ounce) block of firm tofu

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

3/4 teaspoon Asian sesame oil

2 teaspoons rice vinegar (not seasoned)

1 teaspoon soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

4 large celery ribs

2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted

Rinse tofu and pat dry, then cut crosswise into 1/4-in-thick slices. Arrange slices in 1 layer on a triple thickness of paper towels, then cover with another triple thickness of paper towels. Put a small baking sheet on top of tofu and weight with 3 (1-lb) cans (this removes excess moisture), 10 min. Meanwhile, whisk together oils, vinegar, soy sauce, and pepper in a large bowl. Trim celery, then peel with a vegetable peeler and slice very thin diagonally. Cut tofu crosswise into 1/4-in-wide sticks and transfer to a bowl. Toss gently with dressing, celery, sesame seeds, and salt to taste. From Gourmet, June 2006.
