- I sometimes like to coat the tofu with cornstarch (after marinating) and fry the tofu until it gets crispy on the outside, then procede with recipe.
This is a delicious way to serve tofu, quick to prepareand perfect for weeknight dinners. Made for Veg*n Swap #3
My family & I did not care for this one at all. Perhaps I did something wrong in the recipe, but we found it far too salty and visually unappealling. I wouldn't make again.
Loved it! I made this completely as written served over brown rice vermicelli and it was so good. A definite keeper, thanks Sharon.
