Enticingly delicious, Crispy Tofu With Spicy Ginger Sauce → So few ingredients and only a few minutes of cooking, turns simple tofu into the most flavourful light vegan meal or a snack.

Tofu is the milk of soya beans. Rich in protein and virtually tasteless, the silky textured tofu works exceptionally well with tasty sauces. Tofu is like a sponge, it will absorb the flavours in which the tofu is cooked in. In some countries, they refer to tofu as the ‘meat of the fields’

♥ Only two steps to make this crispy tofu with spicy ginger sauce.

First, you crisp tofu cubes in some hot coconut oil. Then you add a sauce that is flavoured with tamari sauce, ginger, sriracha, maple syrup, garlic, sesame oil and vinegar. The sauce is simple to make, all you do is whisk everything together and then add to the wok with the crispy tofu. Heat the sauce while coating the tofu until it starts to thicken. This takes about 2 minutes. Done!

To serve, if you are thinking of a light lunch serve the tofu over rice. If you are looking for a snack serve as is. I often serve this vegan dish as an appetizer when I am entertaining. Just before serving top with freshly sliced green onions and sesame seeds.

The best part, you can make this incredibly delicious crispy tofu dish under 15 minutes. Another spectacular tofu recipe is the Rice Noodles Red Pepper Snow Peas and Tofu in Curry Sauce
