Crispy Ginger Tofu with Greens – Vegan and Gluten Free
June 25, 2013 § 2 Comments
I don’t cook with tofu very often but someone gave us a pack of the lovely organic Tonzu firm tofu and so I threw this together for the kids’ dinner while my baby was napping. Don’t be put off that they didn’t eat it, it really was yummy, I’m sure it was because they’d had a big lunch….bonus was I got to eat it allllllll.
Crispy Ginger Tofu with Greens (gluten free, vegan, nut free)
3 tbsp tamari
1 tbsp sesame oil1 heaped tsp sweetener (I used coconut nectar, but could use maple syrup or agave)
1 heaped tsp stoneground mustard
1 heaped tsp tahini
1cm fresh ginger, finely grated
Half a pack of firm tofu
1/3 cup breadcrumbs (I used gluten free ones from the supermarket)
2 handfuls of finely chopped greens (I used kale and baby spinach)
1 tbsp cooking oil (I used avocado)
Combine all marinade ingredients in a shallow bowl and whisk until combined. Cube the tofu and add to the marinade, turning over so all pieces are covered. Place in fridge for a couple of hours. Place breadcrumbs on a flat plate and once tofu has marinated for a while place each piece on the breadcrumbs and gently cover in the breadcrumbs. Heat the cooking oil on a medium skillet and once warmed place all pieces of crumbed tofu in the pan. Let it fry until crisp on one side then flip over and add the greens to the pan. Once the other side is crispy too give the whole pan a gentle stir so the greens can wilt. Place onto a bowl of rice or quinoa or serve as is!
