I’ll come out right away and admit that I am not a huge tofu fan. It always seemed like too bland of a thing for me. However, when seasoned and prepared properly, tofu can be quite delicious. So here is a quick and easy tofu recipe that I think everyone might enjoy.

METHOD:

Pat dry tofu with a kitchen towel. If you want a firmer tofu texture, you can also press it and leave for an hour, but this step is totally optional. Cut each tofu block into half, so you end up with about 1 centimeter thick tofu slices. Sprinkle tofu generously with salt and black pepper.

Place a non-stick pan on medium heat and allow it to warm up thoroughly. Swirl the oil in the pan, then add the tofu slices. Cook the tofu undisturbed for about five minutes on each side, until crispy and golden.

Meanwhile, while the tofu is cooking, whisk up the sauce by mixing together all of the ingredients until creamy. Once the tofu is crispy on both sides, brush it with prepared sauce. Sear the tofu again on both sides, only for half a minute, until slightly charred. Serve warm or cold.

Odmah ću priznati da nisam baš neki ogromni ljubitelj tofua, a sve iz razloga što je često nekako bezukusan. Međutim, kada tofu dobro začinite i pravilno pripremite, može biti veoma fini. Evo vam jedan brzi i jednostavni recept za tofu u kojem mislim da bi svi mogli uživati.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 2,94 po porciji / 11,74 za sve)

Za tofu:

2 manja komada čvrstog tofua (10,00 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

1 žličica suncokretovog ulja (0,03 kn)

Za umak:

1 žličica miso paste (0,75 kn)

1 žlica kečapa (0,50 kn)

1 žličica Srirache (0,30 kn)

1 žličica tople vode (–)

PRIPREMA:

Tofu posušite kuhinjskim ručnikom. Ako hoćete da tofu ima čvršću teksturu, možete ga prethodno pritisnuti sa nečim teškim i ostaviti da odstoji sat vremena kako bi istisnuli višak vode, ali taj korak uopće nije nužan. Oba komada tofua prerežite po debljini na pola, tako da dobijete oko 1 centimetar debele šnite. Tofu dobro začinite solju i paprom.

Neprijanjajuću tavu stavite na srednje jaku vatru i pustite da se dobro zagrije. Premažite tavu uljem, pa rasporedite po njoj šnite tofua. Nemojte tofu uopće dirate i kuhajte ga oko 5 minuta sa svake strane, da se zahrska i dobije zlatnu boju.

Dok se tofu peče, napravite umak tako da pomiješate sve sastojke dok sve ne bude glatko i kremasto. Kada se tofu zahrskao na obje strane, premažite ga pripremljenim umakom. Sada ga još po pola minute zapecite na obje strane tako da se fino karamelizira. Poslužite toplo ili hladno.
