A delicious tofu snack! Tips: * drain water from tofu after taking out of pack

Top Review by Hadice

This tasted great. The only change I made was not using flour, just frying the tofu as is. When DH had his first bite he said, 'wow this is tangy!' So the dressing really lives up to it's name. The sauce was a bit thin, so I might try heating it up to reduce a little. I used the sugar and honey to cut back on the heat. Yum! Reviewed for PAC Fall 2006
