Crispy Tofu Cubes by http://www.vegcooking.com

Category: Main Dishes - Other



This recipe is suitable for a: vegetarian/vegan diet.





Ingredients:

-----------------------------------------------------

1 lb. firm tofu

3 tbsp. nutritional yeast

2 tbsp. flour

1 tbsp. garlic salt

1 tsp. pepper

1-2 tsp. oil





Instructions:

-----------------------------------------------------

Cut the tofu into 1-inch cubes. Do not pat dry.



Combine the nutritional yeast, flour, garlic salt, and pepper in a container with a lid. Add the tofu. Put the lid on the container, and shake well to coat the tofu.



Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet. Add the tofu and cook over medium heat, turning the tofu every few minutes until golden brown and crispy.





Additional comments:

-----------------------------------------------------

Toss with fried rice or steamed rice with green onions for a quick and easy Oriental entrèe. This recipe can also be prepared with thin slices of tofu instead of cubes for a tasty sandwich filling.

I just made this. Wasn't bad, wasn't great. I ate it plain and dipped it in bbq sauce. Would probably be better on rice. And it was a little too garlic-y for me, I'll probably use slightly less garlic salt next time.

A good dipping sauce would be lemon and soy sauce, then eat it with brown rice.

just a side comment: if you roast the ingredients above (sans tofu), it makes a good topping for noodles... just put less flour and salt.



and i agree with ren, you can never have too much garlic...

The tofu cubes will be crispier if you sub cornstarch for the flour.



Then add a side of mashed potatoes, pour yummy vegan gravy over both, add some steamed baby carrots and snap-peas - ta-dahhhh... dinner!

Thanks for posting this - it got me out of my boring tofu funk!

I made this a few nights ago along with some rice and rajma masala

I used well-pressed and frozen (then thawed and slightly pressed again) tofu cut into triangles and subbed the flour with cornstarch - and used a little extra garlic
