Pan fried tofu with soy sauce (FODMAP friendly, gluten free option, vegan)

Posted on Updated on

When I was growing up in China, tofu was the cheapest protein and it was always plentiful.  At the fresh food market they sold tofu on a large timber slab, carefully cutting out the required portion for each customer – 10 cents, 20 cents…

My grandmother loved pan frying tofu with load of cooking oil. She cut the tofu into little triangles then fried them until golden brown. She then finished cooking with a splash of soy sauce. What a mouth watering aroma!

Tonight I pan fried some tofu with soy sauce for dinner – the tofu was soft and heart warming.

* Use plain tofu for a FODMAP friendly recipe; use gluten free soy sauce for a gluten free option.

It was so easy to make:  

  • cut the tofu into triangles
  • dust the triangles with corn flour and a little salt and pepper
  • pan fry the tofu in hot cooking oil until golden brown; once done, transfer the tofu pieces to a plate
  • mix a little corn flour, a little water and some dark soy sauce; then poured the mixture into the frying pan; on low heat, cook while stirring until the sauce thicken
  • return the tofu to the frying pan; gently toss; ready to serve
  • garnish with some saute green vegetables, if desired.
