Gluten Free Tofu Recipe - Nice Tofu Is Possible

Published 5 June, 2007

Yes, it's true. Tofu CAN be nice. Don't believe me? Well, this gluten free tofu recipe is a major breakthrough in tofu taste sensation.

Gluten Free Tofu Recipe
1 packet firm tofu
4 tablespoons rice flour
seasoning
oil for frying

Take the tofu out of the packaging and drain. The first secret step is to press the tofu for at least 30 minutes, to squeeze out the excess liquid. How you do this depends on what kitchen equipment you've have, and I'd suggest placing the tofu under a plate and weighing it down with a few heavy tins or placing it in a colander and pressing it down with something.

The excess moisture will get squished out and you'll be left with a much drier tofu, which isn't so spongey. The next secret is to pat the tofu dry, then cube it into 1cm pieces. Roll the cubes in seasoned rice flour, then fry in a medium hot frying pan for about 5-7 minutes until golden brown. Other flours can be used, but rice flour is the best one to use as it goes the crispiest when fried.

You can now use the tofu in many ways - just think how you'd use chicken and simply substitute with the crispy fried tofu. I sometimes have it in a pitta bread with salad and a tasty dressing such as sweet chilli sauce or houmous or a tomato salsa.
