This week I’ve been spending a lot of time getting acclimated in my new neighborhood…which for me involves a whole lot of eating.
My first taste of the Tibetan food that is ubiquitous in this area of town.
Dumplings & Veggies & Silken Tofu OH MY!
And did I mention that whole plate cost SIX DOLLARS. So good.
After enjoying that plate of yum I was inspired to whip a batch of silken tofu at home, just for a little variety from the firm stuff. The recipe itself was very simple and involved only 3 steps…
Wannabe-Deep-Fried Silken Tofu
1) Slice silken tofu into blocks and quickly pan fry on a dry nonstick or lightly oiled pan until just browned.
2) Dip silken tofu pieces in a marinade of:
- 1/4 cup almond milk
- 3 tbsp low sodium tamari
- 1 tbsp honey or brown sugar
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- coconut flour
- salt and pepper
