These crispy ‘croutons’ made from firm tofu are a healthier alternative to traditional white-bread croutons. Add to soups and salads for additional flavor and added texture.
- Sea salt
- 1 14-ounce package firm tofu, drained, dried and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
- Vegetable oil, for frying
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- Put the tofu into a bowl, add the cornstarch and toss to coat.
- Place 1/4-inch of vegetable oil into a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Once the oil begins to shimmer, add the tofu and fry for 8 minutes until crisp, turning once halfway through the cooking time. Remove the pan from the heat and then sprinkle the tofu with salt.
