Golden tofu cakes🤩, a super easy dish that you’ll want to save for tonight’s dinner😉
Happy Monday, friends🤗, hope you had a wonderful weekend. My family loves tofu, it’s such a versatile ingredient & can be turned into amazing dishes easily. These tofu cakes will give you a satisfying meal with a crispy✨ layer on the outside & thanks to jicama, you’ll get some crunch inside too🙌🏻. Hope you like this simple recipe😋
Recipe (yields 2-3 servings)
~ 1 pack of firm tofu, drained well
~ 1/4 cup chopped celery (used Chinese celery)
~ 1/4 cup chopped jicama
~ 1 small carrot, chopped
~ 2.5 tablespoons tapioca starch
~ 2 teaspoons salt
~ a pinch of white pepper
~ oil for pan-frying
~ Sweet chili sauce (used maeploy_kitchen brand) with chopped cilantro
✔️Mash tofu in a bowl, if it’s too wet, use a paper towel to absorb moisture. Add celery, jicama, carrot, starch, salt & white pepper to tofu & mix until well combined. Take about 2 tablespoons of mixture & mold it into a patty by passing it between your palms🙌🏻
✔️In a heated non-stick pan, drizzle a thin layer of oil covering the pan, place patty in slowly one by one.
✔️Using low-med heat, pan-fry cakes until golden brown on both sides. It’s best to flip when the tofu starts to turn golden brown at the bottom.
*I place tofu cakes on a parchment paper while working on the rest. Parchment paper helps absorbs some moisture too.
😋To serve, wrap tofu cakes with your favorite leafy greens & dip in sweet chili sauce with a squeeze of lime juice.
Note: chopped cilantro & sweet chili sauce is the best combo. Try it & let me know what you think,👌🏻
