Vegetarian Recipe: Crispy Tangy Tofu

Written by

Every week on the Good Food Blog we celebrate Meatless Monday by sharing a vegetarian recipe from our archives.

Breakaway Cook Eric Gower shares a tofu recipe that’s a quick, tasty, and nutritious way to start a meal, and is one of his favorite ways to serve tofu.

Excellent with a chilled, bone-dry sake like a daiginjo (and, even better, one from Niigata Prefecture, Japan, where it tends to be citrusy and clean-tasting). It’s equally good with a glass of well-chilled champagne.  He first shared this recipe for Crispy Tangy Tofu on January 5, 2008.
