My Happy and Scrumptious Accident

My son decided a calendar year back to minimize out meat and dairy products from his diet program. He was living on his have so I failed to have a need to make vegan or vegetarian food.

Now that he is house I lookup recipe blogs for yummy vegan dishes for him.

The other night I manufactured some thing delicious on my individual with what we experienced accessible – tofu, sriracha sauce, and soy sauce devoid of a recipe.

I squished all the drinking water out attempting not to break the tofu. The paper towels had been soaking damp. As soon as it was as dry as I could get it I sliced it into cubes – most likely 2 inches each individual.

In a different bowl I place sriracha sauce, soy sauce, garlic flakes, and some seasoning. Soon after mixing it and putting some gloves on I placed the tofu cubes into the sauce. I gently moved the parts in the bowl to make confident I covered every single piece.

Whilst I let this sit I heated some olive oil in a frying pan on reduced warmth. At the time heated I additional the parts one particular by just one putting a lid on top rated.

Following about 3 – 6 minutes I flipped them – they had been brown on one particular aspect. Be thorough and keep the heat very low or use protecting gloves for the reason that the grease does splatter.

I taken off them from the hearth a couple minutes afterwards.

Future, I reheated some rice with soy sauce and sriracha along with scallions, thinly sliced carrots, and broccoli.

Finally, I put the rice on the plate with the fried tofu on prime. I tried a little bit myself and my mouth did a content dance. I in fact built a thing yummy.
