Deep Fried Tofu


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • 1 lb. of firm or very firm tofu
  • Cooking oil (corn works well, but lower-fat oils should work too)


Place a large skillet over a HIGH flame. Add enough oil to
cover the pan to a 1/2″ thickness. Allow this to heat
until very hot. While it is heating, slice the tofu into
strips (1/4″ or thinner). When the oil is hot, turn the
heat down to medium. VERY CAREFULLY place the tofu strips
into the oil – it is VERY VERY HOT!! I usually use a large
spatula to put in 5 or 6 strips at once. Allow the tofu to
cook for 30 seconds or so, then flip it and allow it to
cook for about another minute. Continue flipping once
every minute or so until the tofu is as cooked as you want
it to be. Remove and place on paper towels to drain out
the oil. Very crisp, VERY tasty… Goes great on a bagel
with vegan “cream cheese” and lettuce and
tomato. Also good for lots of other things.
