I wouldn't serve these to an omnivore. I did and he said 'That tofu tastes... Chewy.' I, on the other hand, really enjoyed this little number. I had it for breakfast alongside some homemade baked beans and then I had it in a salad and then I had it in a wrap... Well, you get the drift.
Time: 10 minutes.
Makes: As many as you like.
• Super Firm Tofu cut into thin strips- as many as you need.
• 2 Tablespoons Smoked Paprika.
• A few shakes of Pepper.
• A few drops of Liquid Smoke if you can get it (very optional- doesn't really change the taste that much and is hard to come by in Australia. I found it in the Asian grocers on Gouger St next to the Lions at the China Town entrance in Adelaide.)
• About a tablespoon of oil for frying. You really don't want too much. This is more of a 'dry fry' kinda thing.
Cut the tofu into thin strips- about half a cm thick- I think that is quarter of an inch?
Place them in a bowl and rub with the paprika and pepper.
Add the oil to a fry pan over medium to high heat.
Add the strips and on each one place a drop of liquid smoke if you have it.
Fry each side until it starts to look as if it's bubbling a blackening just slightly.
Serve as you like. Xx
