Crispy Honey Garlic Tofu

Crispy Honey Garlic Tofu

I have been trying to change up my foods recently and start incorporating new foods or a more vegetarian style diet such as Tofu. It has taken me a lot of trial and error to get to a point where I enjoy tofu but this is one of my favorite recipes. This dish is perfect for a snack, lunch or even dinner. The sauce is pretty spicy but you can reduce the heat by omitting the siracha or just putting less of it in. Let’s talk about the tofu! The key to crispy tofu is to try to get as much water out of the tofu before cooking. To do this you will want to lay down a few paper towels, drain the tofu and then lay the tofu on the paper towels. Then, you will want to cover the tofu with a few more paper towels and let sit for about 5 minutes. Remove paper towel and then repeat one last time.
