Crispy Sesame Tofu

This recipe for Crispy Sesame Tofu is a mainstay of many of our courses. It's a delicious and versatile way to prepare tofu that can perk up all kinds of grains and vegetables. We like to serve it with quinoa or noodles and stir-fried vegetables. When the season is right, it's especially amazing with purple sprouting broccoli. We most recently made this dish on a vegan class and it went down a storm. Keep an eye on our course calendar for future class dates!

Crispy Sesame Tofu

Serves: 4 | Dietary: Vegan

Ingredients:

  • 250g plain tofu

Marinade

  • 100ml apple juice
  • 4 tbsps shoyu
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • thumb size piece of fresh ginger root, peeled and sliced
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and chopped

Tofu Crust

  • 50g cornflour
  • 3 tbsps black sesame seeds
  • 3 tbsps white sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • sunflower oil for shallow frying

Method:

  1. Slice the tofu horizontally, then cut diagonally into 8 triangles. Place the tofu in a shallow dish.
  2. Mix together the marinade and pour over the tofu. Leave the tofu to marinade for at least an hour, turn the tofu half way through so that it marinated evenly.
  3. Mix together the tofu crust ingredients. Take the tofu pieces one at a time and dip into the mix so that the crust sticks to all sides. Shallow fry the tofu, until crisp. Set aside.
  4. Strain the marinade and keep as a dipping sauce.
