- a block of firm or very firm tofu
- 1 - 2 tbsp of vegetable oil
- 1 tbsp of soya sauce
Prep your tofu - pat dry your tofu then chop it into rectangular prisms (to be exact). You need a large pan with about a tbsp of veg oil heated up over a medium heat. When the oil is hot, lay your tofu in a single layer. It takes about 5 minutes to turn golden, see the picture above. Flip each piece of tofu and brown the other side. You may have to add a little more oil. Allow the second side to crisp up, about another 5 minutes. Turn the heat down and add 1 tbsp of soya sauce. Toss the tofu in the soya sauce so all the pieces get coated. Let them sit on the heat for another 2 minutes then remove. Try one - it's quite a tasty morsel.
