– Sweet + Smoky Tofu –
At times, you just need something a little different. Breaded + fried tofu is easy to make; however, it can be difficult to come up with new ways to flavor your. The smoked paprika adds a sweet + spicy flavor to the crisp cornmeal, which gives way to a soft and warm center.
8 oz extra-firm tofu
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup cornmeal
In a small bowl, mix together smoked paprika, salt, and cornmeal. Cube the tofu and roll with your hands. Fry in a wok or frying pan until crispy on the outside. Serve inside tacos or even on top of lentil soup.
