Ginger Tofu

Morsels of Life - Ginger Tofu - Flavorful, gingery tofu sticks with a tender inside and a crispy exterior.

I had some tofu leftover, and I needed another side, but looking around I didn't have too much else. What to do? Maybe something like a stir-fry? But I wanted something crispier, so I opted for pan frying. If you're in a rush, you can serve these tofu sticks with a sauce (like me). But if you marinate the tofu beforehand, you'll get more flavor penetration. Either way works - just depends on your preferences. This gingery tofu is so simple you can go from raw materials to the table in 15 minutes! Just cut, cook, pour on some sauce, and you'll have some flavorful crispy, gingery tofu sticks!

What's your favorite way to enjoy tofu?

  1. I've never tried tofu - I'm a little apprehensive to be honest. However, I'm sure the ginger would add some lovely flavour. Thanks for sharing with us at #Overthemoon

  2. I know what you mean - tofu can be a bit....different. I like to think of it as a canvas to flavor up. :) Pan frying also helps out with the texture a bit. Maybe you'll like it once you give it a try. :)

  3. I haven't tried tofu either but I like the idea of frying it. Anything is better fried, right? Thanks for sharing at Inspiration Thursday!

  4. Def like these fried! It gives such a nice crispness to the outside, while the inside stays tender. :)
