Sweet & Spicy Tofu

Ingredients
  1. 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  2. 200 g extra-firm tofu, drained and pat dry
  3. 3 spring onions, sliced
  4. 1 tsp minced garlic
  5. 1/2 tsp minced ginger
  6. 2 tbsp sriracha sauce
  7. 2 tbsp soy sauce
  8. 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar , or balsamic vinegar

To serve
  1. 1 lime
  2. 1 bunch of fresh mint, roughly chopped

Instructions
  • Add the oil to a large skillet and put on a high heat.
  • Meanwhile, make sure the excess liquid has been drained from your tofu block and cut into 1 inch cubes. 
  • After a few minutes, test if the oil is hot enough with a piece of tofu. Once it sizzles, it's ready! Add the rest of the tofu (you may need to fry in 2 batches, depending on your pan size) and fry for a few minutes before turning over and frying on the other sides. They should be golden and crispy. 
  • Once cooked, transfer to a plate with some kitchen towel to mop up any excess oil.
