Hot and Sour Tofu

January 30, 2012

My boyfriend introduced me to hot and sour paste, and boy, have I been having fun with it.  This is an incredibly easy recipe – it needs three ingredients.

  • 1/3 of a block of firm tofu (or 1/2 block if you’re really hungry)
  • dribble of vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp hot and sour paste

Cut the tofu up into cubes, blot with a paper towel to get the excess moisture out.  Cook in a frying pan with the oil on high heat until the edges of the cubes brown.  You want a crunchy on the outside, creamy on the inside sort of texture.  Add the hot and sour paste and just enough water to cover the bottom of the pan, stir vigorously.  As soon as most of the water has boiled away again, serve and enjoy.  It’s best when it’s very, very hot.
