Agedashi Tofu is an utterly delicious dish. It's a favorite in our house, and a fun dish to serve to people that think they don't like tofu. Believe it or not, it's easy to prepare, even on busy weeknights. The trick is to drain and lightly press your tofu, to remove any extra moisture. The tofu is coated with potato starch and then fried. The sauce quickly cooks while you're frying the tofu. It can easily fit into a 30 minute time frame, especially if you have someone helping you (my kids love to help when I'm making this dish). A simple cucumber salad (sliced cukes, rice wine vinegar and a splash of soy sauce or tamari) and some steamed brown rice round out the meal. Actually a rice cooker really helps out here too, because it cooks the rice without any work on your part. I do love my appliances!
Rather than type out the recipe, you can print it right off Everyday Dish, and watch the video too. I highly recommend that you try it out. It's so, so good!
I'll be back on Monday with another veganmofo post.
Have a great weekend!
