What is tofu?

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 flavors in which the tofu is cooked in. In some countries, they refer to tofu as the ‘meat of the fields’

2 step crispy tofu with spicy ginger sauce recipe

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!

What to serve with Crispy Tofu With Spicy Ginger Sauce?

If you are thinking of a light lunch serve the tofu over rice like the flavorful 5 Spice Rice With Raisins or the exotic Saffron Rice With Mint. Or for a snack, serve as is.

I often serve this vegan dish as an appetizer when I am entertaining.  And to add freshness, just before serving a sprinkle of freshly sliced green onions and sesame seeds.

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