i seriously heart deep-fried tofu! so after my bulk tofu purchase yesterday (at €0.75 per 500g pack) i was totally craving a tasty tofu dish... so crispy fried tofu in sesame soy sauce was a must on the lunch 'menu'!
250 g block firm tofu, cut in half and patted dry with paper towel
1/2 cup of brown rice
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of rice wine vinegar
1/2 tablespoon of tahini
2 tablespoons of plain flour (or rice flour if you have it onhand)
sprig of fresh coriander for garnishing
cook the brown rice. combine the soy, rice wine vinegar and tahini in a small bowl and whisk to combine. place the flour into another small bowl and use it to coat the tofu pieces. heat enough oil in a small saucepan to achieve a depth of 2 cm. when the oil begins making a crackling sound add the tofu and shallow fry until golden, turning to crisp all sides.
serve with brown rice and pour over sauce, garnishing with fresh coriander - too good!
