A delicious and crunchy tofu recipe that will make a tofu-lover out of even the staunchest carnivore. (Kids love it, too!)
1 block extra firm tofu
2 Tbsp soy sauce
½ cup flour
¼ cup sesame oil
¼ cup sesame seeds
¼ cup chopped green onions, option
Cut tofu in half width-wise, then cut into slightly-less-than centimeter-wide slices. Turn your slices, and cut diagonally, into triangles. Drain them, as described above.
Dip triangles in soy sauce and then dredge in flour.
Heat oil in wok or frying pan, then add tofu triangles and gently fry on both sides. If you have trouble flipping them, try using a fork instead of a spatula.
Remove tofu from wok.
In the same pan, lightly fry the sesame seeds until golden brown. Add a few drops of soy sauce and stir once more in the pan.
Add the tofu back into the wok and gently toss together.
Serve with brown rice, steamed or sauteed vegetables and dipping sauce (if desired – but everybody loves to dip, in my experience!).
