Deep Fried Tofu!

Since getting a deep fryer back in March, we have deep fried a lot of different things.  It occurred to Kaleigh and I the other day that we had yet to deep fry tofu.  That had to change.

I was slightly worried that the tofu would stick to the basket but it came off quite nicely.  We pressed it and marinated it for a short time in soy sauce.  After a few minutes in the deep fryer, we pan fried it for a minute in a traditional brown sauce we made.

Kaleigh and I combined the tofu with a load of shiitake mushrooms and green beans, plated over rice, a side of baby bok choy and ate it up.  It was really good.  As a 7 year old, Kaleigh generally only eats her tofu in a scramble but she destroyed the deep fried chunks we made. They were perfect!
