Leave it to me to take a food that most folks designate as “health food” and I decide to fry it up! What can I say… is good. Man. Fry yourself some tofu tonight. And serve it in a giant lettuce leaf, with match-stick bell peppers and a Greek/dill dressing.
Because it’s colorful. Because it’s yummy. Because you can.
How I fry tofu: First, drain the tofu of as much moisture as you can. I usually place a block of tofu between two plates covered with paper towels and then place something mildly heavy on top of the second plate. This will help…uh, squash moisture out of the tofu. Then cube it, lightly coat it in flour (with a a bit of pepper) and fry in hot oil (I used a mixture of vegetable and canola) until puffy and golden.
For the dressing pictured above: Mix together 2 cups greek yogurt, juice from 1 lime, a few tablespoons chopped dill, 1 tablespoon vinegar and salt + pepper to taste.
