Fried Tofu with lemongrass
Posted By Chat MIngkwan On April 19, 2011 @ 3:20 pm In Tofu Recipes: Easy and Versatile | No Comments
When you have little time, a vegetarian restaurant seems so far away, and the dollars in your pocket are running out, this recipe will make for a quick meal. Ready-fried tofu is available in Asian markets. All you need to do is heat the tofu by refrying or baking it to get back its crunchiness. Instead of fresh lemongrass, use its powdered form, which can be stored in your pantry. Everything is thrown into a pan, seasoned, and heated through. In no time, you will have a delicious, nutritious, and affordable meal. Recipe from Vietnamese Fusion: Vegetarian Cuisine  by Chat Mingkwan.
Slice the tofu into 1 by 2-inch pieces, 1/2 inch thick. Pat dry with paper towels.
Heat the oil in a saucepan and fry the tofu for 5 to 7 minutes, or until light brown and crispy, turning it once. Remove from the oil, and drain on absorbent paper.
Pour the oil out of the pan, leaving just enough to coat the pan’s surface. Stir in the lemongrass, garlic, and chiles, and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until light brown.
Return the tofu to the pan, and stir to mix well. Add the soy sauce, sugar, five-spice powder, and pepper. Stir to combine well, and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until heated through. Transfer to a serving platter and serve as a snack.
