In my post this past November, “ What do I eat ” I wrote one of my quick stir fry recipes. Here is a recipe of mine for tofu crisp strips you can put on top of the stir fry, mix in and enjoy.
Tofu Crisp Strips
makes 8 strips
1 oz firm or extra firm tofu, cutting two slithers (I use a scale when measuring certain ingredients. It is handy to have)
Pinch Chinese five spice powder
Vegetable oil spray
Salt and pepper to taste
1- Take the 1 oz of tofu and pat as much of the water out as you can between a paper towel. Cut each slither lengthwise into 4 strips. Put the strips in a small bowl, like ramekin size, and season with salt and pepper to taste, and the Chinese five spice powder. Mix the tofu with the seasonings to coat well.
2- Preheat a 8 inch non-stick pan for about one minute. Then spray with cooking spray.
3- Place the strips in the pan, laying each one flat, on a low to medium flame, brown both sides, about 3 to 4 minutes per side, turning with tongs. Then serve on your Chinese stir fry.
Note: The strips may break either when mixing with seasoning or in pan. That’s ok..
If you want a bit more spice try adding a smidgen of red cayenne pepper when you are seasoning the tofu strips.
