Fried Rice with Tofu


Fried Rice with Tofu
Originally uploaded by one hot stove.
Supper tonight was Pan-fried Tofu with Asian-style Fried Rice. I have always liked the idea of eating tofu but all too often, blocks of tofu sit in my fridge week after week...

All this changed one night when my house-mate made grilled tofu...the whole apartment had this wonderful aroma.

Her recipe is the simplest ever: Cut tofu into chunks, marinate in Olive oil and Tamari ( Japanese soy sauce; much more flavorful than the regular soy sauce). Then the tofu is fried on a non-stick pan till golden brown. So much better than take-out!

  3. Well, glad to know I'm not the only one who lets tofu sit in the fridge trying to get up the courage to use it, SOMEHOW. I really LOVE the way the tofu tastes at the local Thai restaurant, so I do need to try it...
