My Tofu Recipe

you will need:

  • tofu
  • black bean sauce
  • spring onions
  • plenty of ground nut or veg oil
  • rice
  • lime
  • 2 little cucumbers
  • rice wine vinegar
  • white sugar

Buy a large block of firm tofu. Cut it into cubes. In a bowl place two teaspoons of black bean and garlic sauce (see above brand recommendation) and a little water, mix. Then dip each tofu cube into the mixture, coating all sides. Place the tofu cubes in another bowl (or in the plastic container it came in) and when all coated put in the fridge for a couple of hours.
Heat plenty of oil (ground nut or veg) in a wok, make sure it is hot but not burning and put 4/5 cubes in, repeat until all cooked. Once fried, place cubes on greaseproof paper and keep in the oven on a plate.
Serve with rice, sprinkle chopped spring onion over the tofu, add a lime wedge and some little cucumber slices pickled in rice vinegar and sugar.
