So this is a fun description to write: The tofu gets the bang bang from the boom boom. Relax, Home Chef isn't suddenly hiring three-year-olds to write their descriptions. The tofu, which you'll fry to crispy delight, is topped with feisty boom boom sauce mixed with sesame oil. Maybe it's more like: tofu gets the bang bang from the boom boom sesame. No, tofu gets bang bang from the boom boom says you! We crack ourselves up.
