Introduce the beloved Asian staple Tofu, a versatile and nutritious ingredient that has been enjoyed for centuries in Asian cuisine. Despite its popularity in Asia, Tofu is often overlooked in Western cooking, primarily associated with vegan or vegetarian diets. This recipe, however, is guaranteed to change the minds of even the most skeptical non-vegetarians and convince them to give Tofu a try.

This recipe is not only easy to make, but also foolproof. The most significant feature of this recipe is that it has a meat-like flavor. The tofu cubes pan-fried and coated with eggs create a texture comparable to tender chicken or pork. Additionally, the celery not only adds flavor but also a unique crunch to the dish.

Ingredients for Tofu and Eggs recipe:

  • Tofu: This recipe calls for firm tofu as it holds its shape well, unlike soft tofu which can easily fall apart. For a softer texture, you can cut the Tofu into larger cubes.
  • Soy sauce: The quality of soy sauce plays a crucial role in this recipe, for the best results I recommend using leekumkee soy sauce.
  • Celery: Celery adds a fragrant flavor and a crunchy texture to the dish, but it can be substituted with other herbs like coriander, spring onions, or any other herb of your preference.
  • To ensure a foolproof result, it is recommended to use a non-stick pan for this recipe.

FAQs:

Can I use a different pan than a non-stick pan?

A non-stick pan is recommended for this recipe because it ensures that the tofu won’t stick to the pan and makes it easier to flip. However, you can use a different pan, but you may need to use more oil to prevent sticking.

Can I use a different type of sauce for this recipe?

The sauce in this recipe is straightforward yet delicious, but you can always add more ingredients to intensify the taste. Some options include chili flakes, garlic, oyster sauce, and sesame oil. These ingredients will give the sauce an extra kick and complexity of flavor.
