Last week I attended a cooking class at Nutrihub ..
Nutrihub is an organic vegan café in Singapore. Mrs. Ang ,the owner do conduct cooking classes on weekends
The class was very interesting n we had lots of fun...we put together 4 vegan dishes
The most interesting part was the nutritional n cooking tips Mrs.Ang shared in between the classes.
One of dishes we made was five spice tofu salad and it tasted awesome!!
Right away I got a pack of organic tofu which is used for pan frying from there.
Only later did I realize that other than the tofu I don’t have many of the ingredients in my pantry..
While I am hunting for the ingredients for five spice salad here is a quick n tasty tofu recipe with lemongrass.
Spicy Lemongrass Tofu
150 gms Tofu – Used for frying
3 stalks of lemongrass
2-3 tablespoon Chili paste – I used the sambal chilli paste
2 tablespoon Oil for frying
Salt to taste
Cut the tofu to 1/2 inch cubes and pat dry with kitchen towel
Remove the outer layers of the lemon grass and thinly slice bottom white part
Combine the Chili paste and lemongrass and salt and spread it over the tofu. Let the marinate sit for 10 minutes.
Heat the oil in a pan .Once the oil is hot enough; add the tofu cubes using chopsticks
Stir fry for 2-3 minutes on one side until browned well.
Toss the tofu cubes using chop stick or spatula and fry on other side for 3 minutes until browned well.
You can discard the remaining oil.
Sprinkle some sesame seeds and njoy the spicy tangy tofu..
