Tips for cooking tofu
The key to making firm tofu taste good is to drain all the water first. Slightly squeeze the tofu or press it underneath a book and a clean towel before preparing it!
Season the pressed tofu with salt, pepper, and your favorite spices like cayenne pepper, curry, or a dash of sugar.
Cut it into cubes or thin slices and place the tofu in a hot pan with some vegetable oil. Stir your cubes or slices until they turn crispy and golden brown on all sides!
Enjoy as it is, or serve some of the following dippings sauces alongside your tofu.
