I’m having a love affair with crunchy tofu

If you haven’t tried crunchy fried tofu, you are seriously missing out. Perhaps not the healthiest thing out there when all dressed up, as a vegetarian protein option it’s top of my list and it’s sooo easy!

There are countless blogs out there that explain how to get perfect crunchy tofu and different ways to dress it up. Most days, I simply dip mine in some corn starch and fry in a frying pan with some coconut oil until golden adding a little bit of seasoning. I find this great to add to stir-fry’s or wraps. You can also dip the corn starch powdered tofu in some nut milk and then into some panko to take it up a notch. Here are some of my other favorite ways to dress it up:

Hot for Food: Crispy Sweet and Sour Tofu

Soy and tofu tend to get a bad rap because it comes highly processed and most of it is genetically modified unless labelled otherwise. There are so many amazing benefits to soy though and the reality is the processed soy is in everything. I personally choose to eat soy in moderation and only select non-gmo and organic tofu. There are many health benefits to eating tofu including it’s protein content for vegans and vegetarians.
