Happy MLK Jr. Day everyone! If you’re looking to find a way to eat less meat and you’e unsure of tofu, well then, this is a recipe that you must try. The crispy and crunchy texture makes you forget all about eating tofu and the salty flavor of soy sauce and spicy ginger add a flavorful burst to every bite.



  • 1 package of firm tofu
  • tbsp fresh grated ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • tbsp soy sauce
  • sesame oil
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar (Get the Braggs version with “the mother,” as it has the best health benefits)
  • sprinkle of yellow mustard powder
  • sprinkle of cumin


Drain the tofu from the package and pat the tofu dry. The best way is to put a few sheets of paper towels on the top and bottom of the tofu and press down (with your hands or a plate). Slice the pieces into bite sized squares and pat dry again until all pieces are dry. It’s important to keep each piece dry because when you fry it, it will crisp up the best. Heat a few tbsp of sesame oil in a pan and fry the pieces of tofu until they are crisp – probably about 10-15 min. Chop garlic and pan fry with the tofu, then add in the ginger, soy sauce an apple cider vinegar. Toss until all pieces of tofu are coated and seasoned.
