Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 5 Minutes
1 (12 ounce) package extra firm tofu
3 tablespoons cornstarch oil for frying
2 green onions, chopped
2 tablespoons hoisin
Cut tofu into 12 cubes. Place cornstarch on a plate or in a shallow
bowl and dredge tofu in it, coating thoroughly.
Heat enough oil so that tofu will be half-way submerged. Fry tofu
in hot oil for 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until crispy. Drain
on paper towels.
Sprinkle green onions over tofu
and drizzle with hoisin
sauce. Serve immediately.
Hoisin sauce, also called Peking sauce, is a thick, reddish-brown
sauce that is sweet and spicy, and widely used in Chinese cooking.
It's a mixture of soybeans, garlic, chile peppers and various spices.
It can be found in Asian markets and many large supermarkets. Look
in the Asian or ethnic section.
