|PREP TIME||INACTIVE TIME||COOK TIME||TOTAL TIME|
|15 mins||30 mins (drying tofu)||30 - 35 mins||1 hr 20 mins|
1 teaspoon of
Curry in a Hurry
1 (14-ounce) package extra-firm tofu, drained
2 tablespoons cornstarch
Here is everything that you will need. We will be using Curry in A Hurry to demonstrate this recipe.
Wrap the block of tofu in 5 layers of paper towels and let it sit on a plate for 30 minutes. You want the paper towels to absorb the moisture off the tofu.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line the parchment paper onto a large baking sheet and brush a light coat of olive oil.
Unwrap tofu by removing the paper towels and discard. Cut tofu lengthwise into 8 slices. Then slice them again in halves to make squares. Slice once more diagonally into equal triangles.
In a large bowl, add 2 tbsp of cornstarch and 1 tsp of the Curry in a Hurry blend. Mix the dry ingredients together.
Dip the tofu triangle into the dry mixture and coat it evenly. Gently shake off any excess coating, and place tofu on the prepped baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of tofu and dry ingredients.
The tofu should look like this right before baking. Place the baking sheet in the bottom third of the oven. Bake tofu for 30-35 or until crispy.
