Spicy Stir-fry Tofu

I love tofu,

it’s easy


quick to cook

and it makes me feel a bit Asian…

When I was still with my ex, I remember him complaining every time I was trying to cook Chinese/Asian food. He told me I was not able to and that I should have better stick to making tasty Italian food. I never agreed on that and since, for me, the fun in cooking is in experimenting and creating new recipes, I kept on trying and I’ll tell you something, I’ve got quite good at it.

I particularly like cooking tofu, as it is very easy. If you feel like it, try this recipe. I’m sure you won’t regret it 🙂

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 1 block firm tofu (300 g)
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp chili salt
  • 1 tbsp corn starch

Start by cutting the tofu into big cubes

then sprinkle them on each side with the corn starch

Next, add chili salt

In a skillet heat up the vegetable oil and cook the tofu on medium on all sides

Add to it the sesame oil, soy sauce and chili powder and keep cooking, turning it around gently, until it gets a nice golden-brown color

Remove from the skillet and serve

This was easy, quick and very tasty, give it a try!
