Easy Fried Tofu

Super Simple and Even Tastier!

This recipe goes with just about anything, but feel free to spice up the…spices!

*Rinse Tofu
*Drain excess liquid for about a half hour by wrapping in paper towel to soak up liquid (optional for crispier tofu)
*2 Tbsp Olive oil
*1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
*1 Tsp Toasted Sesame Oil
*1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
*1 Tbsp Onion Powder
(Other seasoning optional- best if using complimentary spices in accordance with overall meal)

*Slice tofu.
(I prefer cubed, but there is no wrong way to prepare it size wise. The more surface hits the oil, the more flavor the tofu has.)

*Heat Fry Pan with oil.
(I use a minimal amount of coconut oil to not flood the tofu with coconut flavor. However, I use it because it gives the tofu a cripsier texture.)

*Add 1/2 of the total seasonings to pan before you add tofu.

*Place tofu and use the remaining seasoning on the side facing up.

*Place lid on pan, to avoid excess splashing of oil. Fry on Medium High Heat for about 5 minute or until golden brown.

*Flip the tofu to cook on the other side, cook for same amount of time.

*Add toasted sesame oil at end and toss around fry pan with tofu.

*Fry for another couple a minutes until all sides are golden brown.

*Add it as your protein to any dish!
