Quinoa salad with honey mustard, miso dressing and Sweet and salty tofu

After eleven years of cooking tofu i feel like I only really mastered it this year. Perfect tofu!! Crispy on the outside, soft in the middle. Sweet and salty. Here are the tricks for perfect tofu:

1. I don’t know why, but it seems to just taste better in triangles then in little cubes as I used to do…

2. Coat a fry pan in about 1/2 TBS coconut oil and once hot lay your tofu down

3. Coat in a very generous amount of pepper and don’t flip until it is fully browned on the underneath, (important!!)

4. Once all the bottoms are golden/browned flip over and coat with a bit more pepper and Himalayan rock salt.

5. Again, leave them until golden on the bottom. Once golden drizzle with about a TBS of maple syrup.

6. Now grab the pan and shake your tofu all around coating it all in the syrup.

7. Cook for a few more minutes, flipping and rotating tofu freely now.

8. Finnish with a sprinkle of nutritional yeast.

Super quick and easy, don’t be daunted by the 8 steps!!

Great in curry dishes, on it’s own for a snack or with salad…
