Salt and Pepper Tofu

Lets dive straight into what your going to need for this, the key to get the texture with this is to firstly get the maximum water out of the tofu thats going to help the tofu go nice and crispy on the outside. Secondly is to be patient with it in the pan. 

What you will need;
1 block of extra firm tofu, pressed maximum water taken out 
3tbs cornflour 
1/2tsp black fresh ground pepper 
1/2tsp ground sea salt 
1/4tsp Chinese 5 spice 
2tbs oil (neutral flavour such as grape seed)


Mix salt, pepper and 5 spice together, take tofu and chop into equal cubes. Place in a bowl and sprinkle over 1/2tsp of the salt and pepper mixture. Coat the tofu with this. Then add the remaining salt and pepper mixture to the cornflour and coat the tofu in that. Heat oil over medium heat, wait till it gets hot, place tofu in and cook/fry for 15minutes until brown. If you want a red pepper to serve, take out tofu and place on some kitchen roll to absorb any excess fat then fry pepper in pan for a few minutes, i like it crunchy. 

This tastes exactly like the take out version, friends have said this tastes even better than the classic take out version. Definitely a weekend treat. 

I hope you enjoyed this, be sure to tag me if you tried making this i love reposting your photos!

Until next time, Helen xx
