DIRECTIONS

  • Slice the tofu block into 8 slices, widthwise. Then cut each slice in half diagonally, to make 16 triangles.
  • Using a wide shallow dish, add the soymilk and cornstarch and wisk until well combined, and cornstarch is completely disolved.
  • In another shallow dish, combine the cornmeal, spices, salt and zest, and gently wisk to combine.
  • Heat about 1/4 inch canola oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  • Dip each tofu triangle into the soymilk mixture, and then dredge completely in the seasoned cornmeal mixture.
  • When oil is hot, fry pieces in skillet for about 3 minutes on each side, I usually do 6-8 pieces at a time.
  • Drain on paper towels.
  • Serve plain, or on grilled rolls with vegan mayo, lettuce and tomato!
