Here’s how to get that perfect, crispy pan sear for your tofu.
Slideshow: Terrific Tofu Recipes
- One 14 ounce (396g) package firm tofu, drained and rinsed
- 2 tablespoons grapeseed or canola oil (or other high flashpoint oil)
- Pat the tofu dry with paper towels to remove excess water. Cut into 1-inch slices.
- Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add the oil and after the oil is hot, carefully add the tofu into a single layer (hot oil may splatter). Sear each side for 1-2 minutes, or until at least 2-3 sides are golden and crisped.
- Drain on paper towels.
