Go Meat-Free for Paul McCartney's Birthday

Today, Sir Paul McCartney turns 70. The legendary musician is, of course, best-loved for his work in The Beatles, but he spent an equal amount of time in Wings. Home cooks might be tempted to mark the knight's milestone with chicken wings—were it not for his ardent opposition to them. In 2010, the 40-year vegetarian and co-author of The Meat Free Monday Cookbook appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to duet with the host on a food-centric parody of "Yesterday." When Fallon attempted to add a verse about chicken wings, McCartney countered with tofu wings. In honor of McCartney's birthday, we're skipping the chicken today and instead suggest Fried Tofu with Spicy Ginger-Sesame Sauce. Pan-fried and topped with a soy-ginger sauce, this tofu dish is amazingly sweet, sticky, spicy and crispy.
