If you’re thinking about making the crispy sweet and sour tofu, may I suggest that you turn it into a meal by adding some brown rice, sliced almonds, and broccoli?
When the tofu is almost done frying, dump 1/4 – 1/2 cup sliced almonds on top so they fall into the oil. As SOON as they start to turn color, take it off the heat and drain the oil. In my experience, almonds taste burnt before they look burnt, so don’t let them sit in the oil forever.
Transfer the tofu and almonds into a large bowl and add some steamed broccoli – 1-2 cups or to your liking. Toss with the sweet and sour sauce and serve over rice.
I promise my next post won’t be fried tofu. Promise!
