Below is a very simple and easy recipe for Soft Tofu and Red Chile that I have been making for years featuring Mori-Nu soft tofu and Kikkoman soy sauce and roasted sesame oil.
I found this recipe originally in one of my favorite cookbooks, A Little Taste of ... China, by Deh-Ta Hsiung and Nina Simonds and published by Murdoch Books. The book itself appears out of print, but it's still showing available on Amazon - this link will at least show you what the cover looks like!

Soft Tofu with Chile
9 oz. soft tofu (Mori-Nu Tofu)
2 tablespoons soy sauce (Kikkoman)
2 scallions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
2 fresh red chiles, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon roasted sesame oil (Kikkoman)
sesame seeds, for garnish
Cut the tofu into cubes and place on a heatproof plate.
Drizzle with soy sauce.
Sprinkle the scallions, cilantro and chiles on top.
Put the vegetable and sesame oils in a small saucepan and heat on the stovetop over medium-high until hot and smoking.
Carefully pour the hot oils over the tofu plate. Garnish with sesame seeds and enjoy immediately on its own or with a side of rice and steamed broccoli.
