Fried Tofu Crumbles & Cooked Tofu Cubes

Fried Tofu Crumbles

(fried tofu crumbles should be used for vegetable soups)

Ingredients

24 ounces firm tofu

3 tablespoons canola oil

 

Directions

  1. Cook tofu in microwave at high level for 4 minutes uncovered on a plat. Set aside in a colander to cool and drain.
  2. Once cool enough to handle, use your hands to break the tofu into small pieces (about ½ inch or smaller).
  3. Heat 3 tablespoons of canola oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the tofu crumbles and stir-fry until golden, using a spatula or similar tool to break the tofu into smaller pieces about ¼ inch or smaller. (Note that if the tofu is not dry enough, the water within the tofu may cause the oil to pop/spatter during frying.)
  4. Remove the tofu crumbles and set aside on paper towel-lined plate/bowl/colander to drain excess oil.
