Fried Tofu with Dipping Sauces
Add about 2 to 3 inches of vegetable oil to a deep fryer or wok. Heat the oil on medium until it reaches about 350 degrees. Carefully add some of the tofu pieces, making sure not to overcrowd them; fry until golden brown, turning constantly. Transfer the fried tofu to paper towels to drain as each batch is cooked.
Serve the tofu with a choice of dipping sauces, such as Sweet-and- Sour, Peanut, and Minty Dipping Sauce (see recipes in Chapter 2).
Although this recipe calls for frying, it is one of the healthiest dishes you can eat. Tofu, which is made from soybeans, is one of the best foods on the planet — low fat, high protein, no dairy, and no sodium.
